John Lewis has always been an inspiration... always level headed, calm, thoughtful and wise. We need more leaders like him - of all ages, but especially young people - promoting non-violent protests while standing up for injustices. Thank you for sharing this series of videos.

Very inspirational! We need to continue to support our Military Veterans who sacrifice and serve for our freedom. Thank you for your service and sharing your story.

This was an uplifting & encouraging video. When he said "the way of love is a much better way" a true statement that more of us should remember.

The civil rights movement and the struggle of the “Freedom Fighters” have been taught in our history books for years. However, as an Alabamian I believe that I have a closer connection to history. Although I wasn’t born during the era and never experienced the struggles to the degree that Congressman John Lewis has, I am personally familiar with the locations that he spoke of:
• The Birmingham Bombing at the 16th Street Baptist church. I have attended that church in the past. This month is the anniversary of the bombing (1963).
• The Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma Alabama.
• Montgomery, Alabama – the state capital.
The bravery and determination of Congressman John Lewis and others like him have been tried and true. Just as the words of Congressman Lewis, “when you lose the sense of fear, you are free” so too I believe that all can benefit from the power of liberation.
