I had the honor of briefly meeting #JohnLewis at Comic-Con 2013 in San Diego. I’m sad that this current state of our country was his last view of it. We owe him and all the civil rights warriors. We all deserve better than what we are currently experiencing. RIP🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/JY4XK5ULvc

I met John Lewis flying from Chicago to Atlanta about 5 years ago. He shook hands with everyone who came up to him and listened to everything they had to say. He was a great orator, but he knew it was important to listen. Sad to think he’s gone. RIP #JohnLewis pic.twitter.com/xMkWwl2qbw

I’ve seen so many posts on my IG off people so have photos they got with John Lewis when they met him. It really speaks to his connection and commitment to the people. I’m sure there are thousands more I haven’t seen from people I don’t know. RIP #JohnLewis

I cried today. I cried for a good man, a leader among men, and man who is now singing with the angels. God Bless you and keep you sir. We will continue to get into “good trouble”, and carry on the fight towards a more perfect union. RIP John Lewis

Zmarł John Lewis. Jeden z organizatorów marszu na Waszyngton. Wieloletni kongresmen z ramienia partii demokratyczne z stanu Georgia. Miał specjalną wiadomość dla HKers. RIP. Kongresmen chorował na raka trzustki.

“Once people begin to see the similarities between themselves and others, instead of focusing on differences, they come to recognize that equality is essentially a matter of human rights and human dignity,” – John Lewis. I salute this American hero and may he RIP.

That doesn’t matter now. Any Dem from the Primaries wld have done, but we have #Biden who is honest, decent & enough experience to restore/heal America. #VoteBlueNoMatterWho across all tickets is now the task. “Keep our eyes on the prize!” & “Never give up!” John Lewis RIP 🌊

My favorite thing about John Lewis is that at ComicCon, he cosplayed as his younger self, wearing the same coat and backpack he wore at the March on Selma and led kids in a little march around the convention. 🖤 pic.twitter.com/6T2sgRZehz

“And generations from now, when parents teach their children what is meant by courage, the story of #JohnLewis will come to mind — an American who knew that change could not wait for some other person or some other time;whose life is a lesson in the fierce urgency of now.”#RIP pic.twitter.com/KgFkGeWbrK

John Lewis deserved respect when alive, not when dead….Reflect on all the vile statements you made about him when alive.. Respect people when alive… stop calling names…Be Presidental, or else people will forget to respect the Office of the President.

PSA for Republicans: Please stop posting photos of yourself with John Lewis (or Elijah Cummings 🙄). Just stop. You were-at best-silent on civil rights, & mostly enablers of white supremacy & Trumpism. But once a civil rights hero is dead, you jump on the lionizing bandwagon.

John Lewis was a real leader who got into politics to correct injustices and to help people. Spineless politicians like you have led to 140,000 dead American bodies from COVID-19. Side by side, they would span 66 miles. They would fill 1,160 football fields.
