People traveled to the United States Capitol to honor the late John Lewis by seeing the congressman's casket and paying their respects in person. (July 27)
SILAS STUART: I always pay tribute to great Americans. And John Lewis is definitely, you know, is represented. And he-- he's-- he's one of those. I've done this trip a couple other times for other presidents and senators. And this my grandson. I wanted to bring him up because I'm telling him how things was when I was a child. And I went to segregated schools and how things are changing.
And it just doesn't make sense, you know, for people to get upset over skin tone. But you know, so I've got to pay my respects to this great hero that we had. You respect him in any way you want. Some people just stand there. I would say a small prayer. I plan on saluted him.
Like they said, everyone will mourn in their own way. But I like the way he just-- I call it stand fast. He was just constant, you know, all the way through, his faith, what he believed in. And like he said, if you see something that it doesn't look right or that isn't right, you know, say something, do something. And he calls it good trouble.
Continue his legacy. You know, get into good trouble, you know. Things aren't going change unless you step up, you know. And you got to get into good trouble, you know, nonviolent, but you got to stand up.
