Thousands of friends, family members and supporters joined together today to pay their respect to the life and legacy to civil rights icon #JohnLewis !
On behalf of Rep. Lewis official home going service in #Atlanta, our forever President #BarackObama delivered an absolutely heartwarming eulogy.
Obama shed light on the personal bond they’d established throughout the years while highlight the impactful efforts of change Rep.Lewis established for the culture throughout the years.
“America was built by John Lewises,” Mr. Obama said. “He as much as anyone in our history brought this country a little bit closer to our highest ideas. And someday when we do finish that long journey toward freedom, when we do form a more perfect union, whether it’s years from now or decades, or even if it takes another two centuries, John Lewis will be a founding father of that fuller, fairer, better America.”
Former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush were also present at the Ebenezer Baptist Church, and paid their respects to Rep.Lewis, reports The New York Times.
