At least it wasn't covid19. But in this day and age, we should have conquered cancer already. I lost my father to cancer.

Can’t say I agreed 100% with him.
But many years ago I met him and 1 thing I remember him saying.
If we ALL can live happy and enjoy life we could never be knocked down.

May his family find peace in this difficult time.

You can expect his memorial service to turn into a Biden campaign rally, and his memory reduced to "We have to stop Trump!"

RIP John Lewis 🙏

#ADOS are a group with a specific justice claim. The #ADOS movement demands a specific agenda with policy prescriptions that address the losses stemming from the institution of slavery, Jim Crow, redlining, convict leasing, mass incarceration and immigration.
Without specific measures being instituted, #ADOS are locked out of the country our ancestors built during chattel slavery. Without reforms through transformative government, we will be left to continue living a third world life in a first world country.

Let's honor Rep. Lewis' by advocating for reparations!

A Titan? If he is so, why do you still shout "Racist!". He's not that effective. Like Obama, not effective.

He went from relevant 60s activist, to the hollow step and fetch it. of the democratic lefty's. MLK TO CBLM. sad sad sad how easily someone gets seduced and bought, by the enemy within. RIP sir. The red game is just getting started. To bad you died just when you groomed the field of battle so well. Stupid.
Remember, the Violence Inflicted on John Lewis, Was the Result of Democrat Governance

We have lost a great man. We are really going to miss him. I have followed him for almost 60 yrs. His job was done. God called him home. He fought a goid fight, and he won. I am so proud of this man, he did everything right. My sympathy goes out to his family, colleagues, friends. God bless you all. I don" t have to say RIP, because I know he is at peace.

His constituents have suffered greatly
So here we are. The wasteland called Washington, DC. The place where many of our elected officials avoid because of COVID concerns. Can't run the government, except by proxy. Too dangerous... Those of us who lost loved ones couldn't be with their spouse, brother, parent whatever at the time of death. Loved ones couldn't have a funeral service to mourn the loss. We have all lost so much catering to the advice being set forth from our government. But..... What do we have here! The death of a prominent Democrat..... My goodness. Poor man. Politicians won't travel to that den of COVID, will they? Really now. That would be much too dangerous. Wouldn't it? We will see..... We will see how dangerous this virus really is very soon. We will see if this game of lockdown will continue, or will there be a miraculous change to what Americans can and can't do. I mean, they won't have a service for Rep. Lewis and still keep the citizens of America locked down... Would they????

Yet not a single reaction focuses on how we remember this icon. I am a Republican. I detest the BLM movement as being communistic and the culture they seek to destroy. Not one among them (or any democrat I'm aware of) is proposing a STATUE of JOHN LEWIS as a way to redefine the greatness of true American icons. It is right to remove old democrat-hero statues like General Lee and Stonewall Jackson into museums where their evil history belongs, and out of the town square where they have stood as symbols of oppression. It is right to remove Christopher Columbus, who never set foot in North America. But we need to replace those "bad examples" with people of HONOR, like John Lewis. Not one person of national importance is saying this... for a very simple reason: They don't want to UNITE us over GOOD EXAMPLES. All they want is DIVISION and DOWNFALL. So screw them. Let's unite people!

Where was his concern for the treatment of Donald Trump?

How about Bret Cavanaugh?

Where did he stand on socialism?

The tearing down of statues?

What about riots?

Blaming whites for, like, everything?

I could go on for days. There were many great things about this man. However, I feel his party turned bad, and used him and he wasn’t aware enough to realize what had happened. Suddenly he was on the wrong side. But his own bias and partisanship prevented him from making a change. Like all career politicians… he got too comfortable playing the game.

I just learned that he represented Atlanta. Is this something to be proud of? If his legacy in the promotion of positive initiatives in his district is considered a success than I’d hate to see a failure.

look at Lewis 's face when Obama gives him the metal.... I know what his expression is saying there... Barry never been in a fist fight .... it's totally a class thing folks not a race thing.... i grew up I listening to 80's Hardcore .... which got it right... i know it's loud ...but the lyrics man
So how many times will he be voting in elections in the coming years?
And how many 10's of $M's in kickbacks and graft are up for grabs now in that vacant seat? The DNC must be SALIVATING.

He started off fighting for good causes. But that was decades ago. Lewis’s 5th Congressional District, according to Forbes, is the 6th most violent city in America. His district has high unemployment for black people (higher than many other places). By all measures in his over 30 years in congress, Mr. Lewis has failed to help raise his community out of poverty, failed to stop the violent crime, failed to bring jobs to his district and failed to improve the lives of children
