Dear John Lewis,
You were like a super hero to the world. So much that I thought you would live forever. I know GOD said we get 120 years. You got a little less but lived a whole lot more through your joy, battle cries and victories. It’s as if Jesus was walking with you and His army of angels throughout your life of wondering about learning, getting married to fighting for justice for all instead of cowering in agreement to injustice.
I am so happy that you were one of the many that carried the baton for Dr Martin L King and Malcolm X in your fight for justice peacefully. Strength in the conviction of a right to seek justice and the moral foundation to run straight at injustice whether dogs at your back or battering rams above you.
The battle you fought with The Holy Spirit at your side was won before you said yes to courage at the asking of LORD to carry righteousness into this world. You came into this world to preach the gospel by your life choices just like Jesus. I pray we carry on the righteousness you confessed with exact temperament honoring Jesus. Greater things we are to do cause you are now with Jesus in Heaven. Thank you, LORD, for lending us your son, John Robert Lewis for a little while.
