Rest In Peace John Lewis

“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.”

— John Lewis

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.
