      It is a sad day that comes with an endeavor for We the People: It is up to us to carry on his fine work. It is the best way to honor this fine American Statesman and fine human being, and in doing so, convey our gratitude.

      @laksh nayyar Thanks for clarifying that dear. I live in Kenya so I’d not have known.

      @John Balnis Dad look at this pathetic man baby needing attention on all these different comments. Sad. What is so messed up in you that you can’t let this fine man have a moment? Obamacare covers mental health treatments. Have a wonderful day.

      @Rhonda Really beautifully put, dump will be an ugly memory soon.

      @Leonie Romanes and an awful chapter in our history books. They are going to ask how we allowed a second Hitler to blossom for decades!

    • @john smith look at you doing Putin’s work dividing this fine nation by race.

    beaten but not defeated. The true character of a man is revealed by who they are willing to forgive, not who they hate.

    • A man of principle and honour. Courage and strength. So loved. You fought so others may live. There is no greater gift than to lay down your life for your fellow man. God bless you John Lewis.RIP

      @SOL LUNA and yet, when that gets filmed you have won a battle. If black don’t resort to violence and the other side uses violence against black – that is how you win hearts.

    • One of the man who beaten him apologized years ago and they became friends.

    • @John Does That is such a wonderful event in his life. A humble man. A great man.

    A respect member of our society has left us, we will always follow your legacy sir!

  5. The thumbnail should have read “Rep. John Lewis’ Casket Travels Across The John Lewis Bridge.”

    • Exactly. This should have been settled years ago.

    • @To The Point until they change the name we should just call it the Selma Bridge and never utter his name.

    • @S. Anderson
      Until then, the Selma Bridge works for me.

    • @David Adams All these Democrat Statues being torn down and now you want to take another Democrats name off a bridge. It must be tough being in the party of slavery and jim crow . How have you not cancelled yourselves?

    • The Flame Fist God | July 26, 2020 at 7:40 PM | Reply

      anonADAM how can you be so against democrats and be completely for having statues of racist democratic leaders? You just a pure ignorant racist yourself

    • @Rave Theatre: Thanx for the spam, moron!

      @SpookeyR thanks for the negative energy

    • @Rave Theatre: So, you’re blaming me for your negative energy?¿

      Gosh, I…I…I don’t know why or how I allowed myself to so foolishly overlook this & allow this to happen… Please, don’t blame yourself; it’s obviously all my fault…

      Yea, okay!

    • Rave Theatre | July 26, 2020 at 6:55 PM | Reply

      @SpookeyR no need for hard feelings .
      Have a nice time

    • @Rave Theatre: Let me guess: You are getting something for driving up the # of viewers/clicks of/for that video. So, you believe that there is nothing wrong with spewing spam, at least for you – regardless of how/what you might feel about that regarding other people/users, eh?!

      You’re a `spam-trollop` and you don’t see anything wrong with it.

    this is true American dream. he did overcome.

  8. America lost a lion in the battle for justice and civil rights. John Lewis fought to preserve the American dream, for every man woman and child in this country. Rest in peace good Sir, and thank you for your years of service to this country.

    This brought tears to my eyes … knowing he sacrificed his body, his life, not knowing if he would survive the day…so I can sit here today

  20. This bridge should be re-named to “Congressman John Lewis Bridge”.
