WHAT'S HAPPENING

TRIBUTE TO OUR CONGRESSMAN, JOHN LEWIS

In June 2019, reporter Jonathan Capehart asked Representative John Lewis “what he would say to people who are exhausted and feel as though they have already been giving it their all but nothing seems to change.” Lewis answered: “You must be able and prepared to give until you cannot give any more. We must use our time and our space on this little planet that we call Earth to make a lasting contribution, to leave it a little better than we found it, and now that need is greater than ever before.”

“Do not get lost in a sea of despair,” Lewis tweeted almost exactly a year before his death. “Do not become bitter or hostile. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. We will find a way to make a way out of no way.” 

John Lewis 1940-2020.  Thank you, Sir. May you Rest in Power.
