John Lewis.    (pancreatic cancer, which he announced late last year)

 

He won't get to be part of things getting better... except he always will be.

 

"We got Civil Rights because the Klan attacked us and we refused to fight back."

 

By force of will... by force of faith... faith in God... faith in America (eventually) doing what's right...

Man pancreatic cancer is no freaking joke. Awful awful disease.

It is.

I have a friend whose pancreatic cancer was caught in an early stage. Fortunately for him, the cancer was detected by a blood test he took before an elective knee surgery. He's pretty much cancer free after two years of chemo treatments.

Good for them. That is the same cancer Alex Trebek has, and I recently read the one year survival rate is only 18%.

John Lewis was, in no uncertain terms, one of the greatest individuals alive. This sucks so hard, and I wished that he could have been around to see things get better.

A great Twitter thread on his speech at the 1963 March on Washington and the changes that were resulted from coercion from MLK and A. Philip Randolph.

Unfortunately I am guessing it's not going to happen in 2020 unless I've missed a development. Which is really telling of where we're at as a society if you think about it.
