“You must be bold, brave, and courageous and find a way… to get in the way.” John Lewis

When asked by a young person what they should say to their parents in order to respectful convenience them of the need for young people to be active, John Lewis said, tell them you are, “Touched by the spirit of history.” John Lewis embodied what courage is, throughout his 80 trips around the sun, courage. Courage to always walk the walk, courage to call out injustice, courage to stand up in the face of police brutality, courage to look racists in the eye, and not be moved, courage to speak out. Courage.
