RIP, John Lewis

Usually, I share a song on Mondays. I’ve been working my way through a little challenge series, and I would have been on #11. However, one of my heroes has passed away and I wanted to write about him. The problem is, I have yet to gather my thoughts into anything like coherence.

I learned that Rep. John Lewis had passed away while I was driving home from visiting my mom in Oregon. I drove down the freeway bawling my eyes out. This man literally put his life on the line for equality.

I lack his ministerial eloquence (I suspect most of us do). Here is a tiny snippet of who he was.

Rest in power, brother John.
