Thank you for your life, John Lewis. You ran the race for all of us, magnificent to the end. I heard someone say yesterday, in paying tribute to you, that your most subversive act was growing old. I didn’t agree. I believe your greatest genius was your humility, your stubborn belief in the best of us, and the way it made you bold. Rise in power, Good Sir. You used your life to make the world better for those who follow. You earned this rest. Walk into the next world like the king you are. On this side, we will hold you in love and gratitude and carry on in your name.
