“Today, America is grieving the loss of a towering moral leader, one who repeatedly stood up in the face of adversity against inequality and injustice. Congressman John Lewis will forever be remembered as a man who lived his life with purpose, serving others, and fighting for racial equality and freedom.
His words and actions will transcend through history, and his courage born of conviction and faith will live with us. His figure is a beacon of hope and inspiration to continue fighting for racial justice. America will remember his legacy.
I cannot find the words to express what we have lost as a Nation, but I convey my thoughts to the Lewis family with profound sadness and grief.
Today, we celebrate his leadership, achievements, and his legacy. Rest in Power, Sir. Let us all continue to make good trouble in your honor.”
