Congrats to Congressman John Lewis

Congressman John Lewis receives Medal of Freedom from President Barack Obama

 

Congressman John Lewis was recently awarded the Presidential Medal  of Freedom. It was a poignant moment for people like me who are children of the Civil Rights Movement. Every day of my life I give thanks for courageous people like Congressman Lewis who followed a dream and made  all of us better. I am proud to live in his district.

In July of last year, Congressman Lewis received a quilt from the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild (a guild of which I am proud to be a past president) to honor him for his distinguished service. Just shows that great minds think alike.
