John Lewis (1940-2020)

America has lost one its greatest leaders. As one of the Freedom Riders, John Lewis was in the center of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's. He led the way in places like Selma, Montgomery and Rock Hill. He marched with Dr. Martin Luther King. He was jailed and beaten in his quest for freedom and racial equality. His skull was fractured. Still, he preached non-violence as he sought justice for all. John Lewis has set the standard that all of us should aspire to.

Please take the time to read the links below and to recognize what an extraordinary American John Lewis was.

It’s important that we think about the great character our leaders have had. We need men like Congressman Lewis as leaders. Selfless, empathetic and unifying. Vote. Thank you Al for your hard work and ethics.
