Rest in Peace, John Lewis

John Lewis died Friday evening.  With his death, the United States lost a Civil Rights icon and a voice for justice.  John Lewis was arrested again and again for speaking his mind and demonstrating for equal rights. Yet, he continued to speak with hope for what America could be.  He demonstrated that hope when he met with and forgave a Ku Klux Klansman who beat Lewis years ago.  In tribute to him, Stories of Joy is rerunning a story we published in January.
