There are 3 comments on US Rep. John Lewis (Hon.’18) to 2018 Grads: Be Bold and Courageous

  1. Thank you for resharing this moving speech. Rep. Lewis’ words seem even more prophetic today – “We’re all in one boat now – one people, one family, one house.” He talks of “beloved community” and “a spark of divine in all of us” and ends with “Get out there and vote like never before”. May we all take heed of his words and also about getting into “good trouble, necessary trouble”. May he rest in peace.
