Died of pancreatic cancer.... tough way to go.
In any case, I was never too familiar with John Lewis, but it appears he was a good man, fighting for the civil rights of blacks and even speaking alongside Martin Luther King back in the day.
He fought tirelessly throughout his life for the rights of blacks.... and yet had the humility and wisdom to speak out against the rioting and looting that accompanied the George Floyd protests.
(BTW, these are my words... not quoting or paraphrasing anybody).
In these times of racial polarization, with everything that's going on... it's a shame that Lewis couldn't live to see some real progress in the racial strife that affects the country.
Regardless of which side you're on, think one should at least recognize a good man when they see one.
Apparently he coined the phrase "good trouble", as the kind of trouble he would get into by engaging in protests for the rights of blacks.
IMO, people like these are few and far between..... and it's too bad we don't have more John Lewises.
