    Mr. Lewis had passed away late Friday and I heard about this on Saturday. He was part of the early civil rights movement events with his mentor Dr. King and he later became a congressman in the US. And I believe he took a lot bullshit and beatings for our community and for people of color to have the rights we have and still fight for on a daily basis. So I ask for a moment of silence for the passing of Mr. Lewis.
