Lewis Looks like Elijah Cummings twin brother
At least it wasn't covid19. But in this day and age, we should have conquered cancer already. I lost my father to cancer.
It seems like everybody is dying of pancreatic cancer BUT Ruth Bader Ginsburg! Something is rotten in the state of Denmark (Hamlet)

Mike Sacco:
Can’t say I agreed 100% with him.
But many years ago I met him and 1 thing I remember him saying.
If we ALL can live happy and enjoy life we could never be knocked down.

May his family find peace in this difficult time.

He went from relevant 60s activist, to the hollow step and fetch it. of the democratic lefty's. MLK TO CBLM. sad sad sad how easily someone gets seduced and bought, by the enemy within. RIP sir. The red game is just getting started. To bad you died just when you groomed the field of battle so well. Stupid.

We have lost a great man. We are really going to miss him. I have followed him for almost 60 yrs. His job was done. God called him home. He fought a goid fight, and he won. I am so proud of this man, he did everything right. My sympathy goes out to his family, colleagues, friends. God bless you all. I don" t have to say RIP, because I know he is at peace.

I'm tripping hard! I thought this guy died last year. Either I thought Elijah Cummings was him or this is some serious Mandela effect type situation. Am I the only one!?

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!

Ok, you know that isn't a true statement. People are so full of lies, theyll say anything, knowing they dont mean a word of it. I didnt k ow who this man was, and I dont care.

RIP John Lewis.....Please Just Reflect People...Just HONOR Him..Sit in this moment and reflect (THINK, COGITATE, REFLECT, REASON, SPECULATE, DELIBERATE mean to use one's powers of conception, judgment, or inference. THINK is general and may apply to any mental activity, but used alone often suggests attainment of clear ideas or conclusions)

Cant help thinking about the disrespectful things said when former President Bush died. Classic USA!
So here we are. The wasteland called Washington, DC. The place where many of our elected officials avoid because of COVID concerns. Can't run the government, except by proxy. Too dangerous... Those of us who lost loved ones couldn't be with their spouse, brother, parent whatever at the time of death. Loved ones couldn't have a funeral service to mourn the loss. We have all lost so much catering to the advice being set forth from our government. But..... What do we have here! The death of a prominent Democrat..... My goodness. Poor man. Politicians won't travel to that den of COVID, will they? Really now. That would be much too dangerous. Wouldn't it? We will see..... We will see how dangerous this virus really is very soon. We will see if this game of lockdown will continue, or will there be a miraculous change to what Americans can and can't do. I mean, they won't have a service for Rep. Lewis and still keep the citizens of America locked down... Would they????
