"Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble." ~ John Lewis (1940-2020)*
When I was a teacher in DCPS we had a book talk for his graphic novel “March” and he stayed around afterwards and shook hands and took pictures and had mini conferences with EVERYONE. Our conversations centered around Sigma and Alpha. He told me I made a mistake and should be wearing blue and white but because Martin was an Alpha I would get a pass. I was in awe of his presence and didn’t even think about getting a picture I was just taking in the moment. It was his suggestion to take a picture, so I did.
