To say John Lewis is all talk, talk, talk and no action is more than laughable. It's offensively ignorant. Forget that Lewis was recently one of the main congressmen holding a sit in at the house in demand for gun control.
He's one of The Big Six. The Big Six of the Civil Rights Era being MLK, James Farmer, John Lewis, A Philips Randolph, Roy Wilkins and Whitney Young. These men organized the March on Washington in 1963.
To say John Lewis is all talk, talk, talk is ridiculous. This amazing patriot was one of the first 13 Freedom Riders.
This man organized the Civil Rights march of 1963 knowing that the mere mention of it could get him killed as it ultimately did for his fellow Big Six organizer MLK.
This man is nearly 80 and isn't being given the respect he deserves. HE's THE LAST SURVIVING MEMBER OF THE BIG SIX.
People we just honored MLK but MLK would want to see John Lewis honored at least once before he dies. Obama couldn't do it because they are both black.
But to let John Lewis go out being made fun of is unthinkable.
He needs to be remembered now not in his death.
It was easy for me to march. I knew my life wasn't on the line. John Lewis woke up everyday during the 60's with his life on the line yet he continued.
