Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may not have enough delegates to win the nomination, but he and his supporters vow to fight on.

Bernie Sanders may not be the presumptive Democratic nominee, but his hard work is still burning bright.

Tens of thousands of people lit up social media Wednesday morning with #ThankYouBernie, to express their love, thanks and continuing support for the independent senator from Vermont following Tuesday's primary defeats.

The hashtag was one of Twitter's top trends as supporters recognized everything from his unprecedented campaign fundraising, lifetime fight for civil rights, to him just plain "giving a damn."

Though Sanders won the North Dakota caucuses and the Montana primary Tuesday, it wasn't enough to surpass rival Hillary Clinton who won four states, giving her enough delegates to become the presumptive Democratic nominee.

Despite his loss, the unyielding senator vowed to fight on to Philadelphia's convention while calling for "social, economic, racial, and environmental justice" during a speech Tuesday night.

"You all know that it is more than Bernie — it is all of us together,” he told a raucous Los Angeles crowd. "Our fight is to transform our country and to understand that we are in this together. To understand that all of what we believe is what the majority of the American people believe. And to understand that the struggle continues."

Win or lose, he clearly set a fire and his trail continues to burn bright.
