I love this man! It’s a sad day. I love what he’s done and what he stands for he not only preached on equality but he lived it, fought for it. I truly believe he loved all for who they were because he didn’t see color, heritage or what gender they were he say the person for good that they should for. R.I.P. you were a giant for humanity and you will be missed and loved always! 🥺♥️🥺

Before, it was the counter-protesters and defenders of the status quo that shed blood. Now, it's the protesters themselves who are shedding the blood.

😪 Thank You Mr. Lewis and all civil rights activists for helping us start our lives in a less biased society. It would have been a nightmare of a world if we did not have leaders like you protecting our constitutional and civil rights.✊🏿

Now, you R.I.P Sir... we got this.

Thank you for your Sacrifice, your Patience, your Struggle, your Wisdom, your Experience and your Courage. May God bless you for being the statesman and elder to our new generation of Freedom Fighters for Equity and Justice. Even today as you stood during the 60s. You made "Us "Proud. Take your seat at the right hand of our Creator and we will remember you in "our" history books along with many others who sat down then so we can stand up today. Bless you Brother John Lewis.

America did not need this now. First the great Elijah Cummings now John Lewis. This is not right. We needed them to help America heal once Joe takes over. We need unity, equality, righteousness, honesty, integrity and justice back.

Just think. A junkie like Rush Limbaugh was given the medal of freedom. This countries standards are the lowest that they have been in 75 years.

Two favorite quotes of mine:
"Le premier qui inventa les fossés était sans doute un homme faible, car la société ne profite qu'aux gens chétifs. Placés aux deux extrémités du monde moral, le sauvage et le penseur ont également horreur de la propriété"
La Peau de chagrin (The skin of sorrow) de Honoré de Balzac
Which means:
The first who invented the ditches was undoubtedly a weak man, because the company profits only from the weak people. Placed at both ends of the moral world, the savage and the thinker equally abhor property.
And for would have a revolution:
Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.
by Alphonse KARR
(The more things change, the more they remain the same.)
Show a little gratitude for the sacrifices of many generations of your elders of all races and creeds that fought and died for your country and had worked to build the country you live in with far fewer rights and social protections than you enjoy. Spend a few minutes with a lady that came from out of Africa as a young lady, rose in Holland to be seated in the Dutch parliament, was targeted by Jihadists and found safety in America. Let her remind you of what America means instead of a bunch of crybabies would be revolutionaries pulling down every symbol of a nation whose history they do not know in more dimensions than only one.

I'll always remember him as a gentle lover.
Every time we lose a sincerely dedicated Leader to injustice and Civil Rights Advocate and Activist, some of the most vile comments come out of the wood work.

Rest in peace Mr. Lewis, your work and "Good Trouble" will forever pave the way for those who seek out Equality, Righteousness and Self Respect!! Your service to your country and it's people will forever surpass the hatred the world infects upon it!!

Thank you for YOUR Service!!

Lewis was a potential good man until he became a member of the party that created the KKK. He was a racist against white people and he was a corrupt politician. Expect never ending news coverage of this 17 term member of the D.C. swamp

RIP John Lewis🙏

#ADOS are a group with a specific justice claim. The #ADOS movement demands a specific agenda with policy prescriptions that address the losses stemming from the institution of slavery, Jim Crow, redlining, convict leasing, mass incarceration and immigration.
Without specific measures being instituted, #ADOS are locked out of the country our ancestors built during chattel slavery. Without reforms through transformative government, we will be left to continue living a third world life in a first world country.

Let's honor Rep. Lewis by advocating for reparations!

I’m from Montgomery AL I watched the March! And listened to MLK’s speech and I learned! It’s not the color but his/her character! Saggy pants and not knowing how to tie boot laces or how to wear a baseball cap! 6 of my friends and I watched the march just before they got to the Bridge! And he didn’t even believe his own speeches! His mouth just runs without thought!!
