On the day they were burying. . .

Rep John Lewis aka John Robert Lewis.
He had given the New York Times an opinion for them to run on the day he was laid to rest.
Here is part of what he wrote.
Though I may not be here with you, I urge you to answer the highest calling of your heart and stand up for what you truly believe.
"Around the country and the world you set aside race, class, age, language and nationality to demand respect for human dignity."
"The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change agent you have in a democratic society.
You must use it because it is not guaranteed.
You can lose it."

During his burial President Obama in his eulogy, he reminds us to fight what John Lewis bled so some could vote.
And he asked that instead of thinking of voting as an errand nonetheless as the most powerful tool to bring on change.

How could someone in flesh and blood be so courageous, so full of hope and love.
In the face of so much hate, violence, and vengeance?
Perhaps it was the Spirit that found John as a young boy.
In the Deep South dreaming of preaching the social gospel.
The work ethic his sharecropper parents instilled in him.
And that stayed with him; the convictions.
Of nonviolent civil disobedience he mastered from Dr. King.
And countless fearless leaders in the movement.
Or the abiding connection with the constituents.
Of Georgia’s 5th District he loyally served for decades.
- GOP Senator Thom Tillis
