A pursuer of justice his entire life, John Lewis received the Presidential Medal of Honor in 2011. His courage and support of civil rights were admired by many. We end today with his words:

“Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.”
