R.I.P. John Lewis, Civil Rights Icon, United States Congressman from Georgia, champion of voter’s rights. Representative John Lewis passed away yesterday at the age of 80. He marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. and was part of the nonviolent movement his entire life and always humble. A commentator said “he’s been on the right side of history.” President Barack Obama called him the “conscience of the United States Congress.”
I celebrate his life and I’m saddened by his loss. But I’m am most distraught by the undoing of his life’s work by the current administration. Voter’s rights must be enforced. Stop the divisiveness and stop voter suppression! Enough is enough…..
