For John Lewis

This is the final sentence in an opinion piece by the late Congressman John Lewis which was published today in the New York Times. He wrote it shortly before his death to be published on the day of his funeral.

And my John Lewis story: When I saw Black Panther, I was so taken by King T'Challa's speech that I wrote it out the next day. When I heard that John Lewis loved the movie, I sent it to him. And he sent me back this lovely note! I was so moved by his funeral service today. Such strength. Such love.
