My trip to Washington DC to say goodbye for now what I saw as I made my way.
People came from near and far to say goodbye for now.
People came to see that great man laid at rest.
People came to take pictures and protest.
People came to show their love.
People came to tell and share their stories.
People told of their lives, their struggles, their dislikes, and or despair.
People told of their kids, wives, and husbands.
People were saying I was compelled to come, I had to come.
People came and showed their solidarity.
People came walking in some form of unity that day.
People said we love what this man stood for freedom and love.
People said he stood for peace and harmony.
People said he told us to love one another.
People said he told us to stand up for what we believe.
People said he didn't want us to be deceived about what standing up would mean.
It would mean pain and suffering, it would mean personal attacks on one's person.
People said thank God for Mr. John Lewis.
I hope people will say let me live as a better example of true love and peace.
I hope people will say let true and positive change start with me.
Help us/me to get into Good Trouble amen and amen!
