May we all do our part to make this happen.

Thank you for posting this. I watched much of the funeral yesterday. Sad to lose people like Lewis, especially at a time when we need their voices the most.

I listened to Obama's eulogy. John Lewis was a remarkable man - of purpose, faith, and actions. We need the voting rights act now more than ever.

Obama's eulogy was just wonderful - and a call to action.

Ditto. When I watch Obama now, I am filled again with pride but also deep sadness. This is what dignity, compassion and leadership look like. How far we have fallen.

I mourn for John Lewis, but also for this nation and the world.
