To a great leader of nonviolence in the Civil Rights Movement; I'd like to take a moment to thank for you for all of your work and dedication to change in a country riddled with inequality. You strived for a shift in consciousness and the momentum you fostered so many years ago is still vital today. We hold your loved ones and movement collaborators in our hears on this day of remembrance.
In a moment of change and uncertainty we look to your leadership and teachings to help us move through and stand up for our beliefs. I'd like to additionally thank Congressman John Lewis and his continued efforts. There is a need for our voices of dissent to be heard, and I am thankful for these leaders who create spaces for all Americans to do so.
On this day, the nation celebrates the birth of a true leader, Martin Luther King Jr. -- we honor and thank you for your service.
