victims in their own country

 

Portland, USA, July 2020.

“Victims in their own country of state sponsored violence… 

…And someday, when we do finish that long journey toward freedom; when we do form a more perfect union – whether it’s years from now, or decades, or even if it takes another two centuries – John Lewis will be a founding father of that fuller, fairer, better America…

…where real courage comes from. Not from turning on each other, but by turning towards one another. Not by sowing hatred and division, but by spreading love and truth. Not by avoiding our responsibilities to create a better America and a better world, but by embracing those responsibilities with joy and perseverance and discovering that in our beloved community, we do not walk alone.”

Words from President Barrack Obama’s inspiring eulogy and call to action today at the moving funeral for the late Congressman John Lewis.
