Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is in Flint, holding a panel discussion on the Flint water crisis.

Sanders told the crowd that it is horrific and sad to discuss, and that "It will take courage to face reality and go forward."

Sanders also told those in attendance that the water bill at his home in Burlington, Vermont is about $70 a month. That's roughly half what the people in Flint are paying for the water they cannot currently drink.

Sanders also told the crowd that if anything positive comes out of the current situation, it will be that people "will say never again."
