"Next time we march we may have to keep going when we get to Montgomery. We may have to on to Washington."John Lewis
"I thought I was going to die a few times. On the Freedom Ride in the year 1961, when I was beaten at the Greyhound bus station in Montgomery, I thought I was going to die. On March 7th, 1965, when I was hit in the head with a night stick by a State Trooper at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge, I thought I was going to die. I thought I saw death, but nothing can make me question the philosophy of nonviolence."John Lewis
We may not have chosen the time, but the time has chosen us.John Lewis
