Rep. John Lewis (1940-2020): Good Trouble

“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.” – Representative John Lewis

We mourn. We have lost a powerhouse public servant and civil rights activist who has stood by the great leaders of history from MLK Jr to Barack Obama. I have always been proud to live in Atlanta and in his congressional 5th district. I live minutes from his mural that lovingly sits in Auburn. Thank you for reminding us daily why we fight and why we persist. He will be missed by those who knew him and those who didn’t.
