Remembering Congressman John Lewis
August 4, 2020
Few people have had as great of an impact on the soul and the conscience of America as Congressman John Lewis. His courage, his dedication, his passion, and his self-sacrifice has made him a true “American Hero.”
REALTORS® from across the country were sad to learn of the passing of Congressman Lewis. We have had the honor of working with him over the years and he has always been accommodating and listened to our members with sincere interest in our needs.
He was a friend of the REALTORS® and supported many issues brought to Capitol Hill by the real estate industry. Rep. Lewis was a true “REALTOR® Champion” and will deeply be missed.
Known as the “Conscience of Congress”, Rep. Lewis lived his entire life serving others. Whether it was as Chairman of the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee, marching alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., or serving the people of Atlanta in City Hall and in the halls of Congress, John Lewis lived a life dedicated to civil rights, equal rights and human rights.
Atlanta has lost a Congressman, the Nation has lost a hero, but we all have lost a friend.
Thank you, Congressman Lewis, rest well.
