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. In my life I have done all I can to demonstrate that the way of peace, the way of love and nonviolence is the more excellent way. Now it is your turn to let freedom ring.Excerpt from John Lewis essay in The New York Times

In Representative Lewis’ essay he calls on all of us to answer the call against such forces, as he did. We must heed the call and act. We must vote in November 2020!
