“Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.”
— Representative John Lewis

“When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.”

I started this spread thinking of my own mundane life goals when I heard of Representative John Lewis’s death. Just reflecting on his life goals is aspirational.

The old guard is passing. Time for us to pick up the torch he carried. Thank you for remembering John Lewis. His was a life well-lived. Rest In Peace.
So true. He was not just the Conscience of the Congress but of the Nation.
