John Lewis: Do not get lost in a sea of despair




Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Do not become bitter or hostile. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. We will find a way to make a way out of no way. #goodtrouble

2. Have been waiting for his words of

wisdom. The Right Wing will not attack him directly because of his putting it on the line in defense of equal rights and voting rights. There are video's that show him putting his body on the line.

8. John Lewis is a wise man, and a better man than I

I possess no more than a spindly broom to sweep back the tide of bitterness and hostility that rushes towards me with every manifestation of the vile racism, intentional cruelty, and appalling ignorance of the pathogical liar who occupies the highest position of leadership in the country I used to love unconditionally but now struggle to respect.

12. His voice is so powerful!

When he said that he knew what racism was and that Trump is a racist, I could only think of the beatings, the harassment, the danger he often experienced to simply say I am a human being, I am your equal. That perseverance and determination are so admirable. He is truly a hero, and I think Republicans who heard this man who went through hell solely because of racism and still voted for Trump are simply morally bankrupt. Racism is a sickness that is reaching an epidemic. I’m not sure I have John Lewis’ ability and determination to push forward in the face of near-constant obstruction, but I will fight racism however I can to my last breath.

15. We so need his message of hope...

Too often, I hook my day-to-day contentedness and happinesss to things political. That leads to up-and-down days and considerable misery. Fuck that! Politics are important, but it's not the most important things. Friends and family are.

and has kept fighting for decades.

Great man!

18. thank you

Congressman Lewis, you are a treasure. I think the tree of liberty will have to get refreshed. By us.


Father Thomas Jefferson: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
