The Remarkable Parallels between Rep John Lewis & Women's Rights Legend Alice Paul
As the Nation remembers the Life time of Service the Gentle Giant of the Civil Rights Movement, Rep. John Lewis, I cannot help but notice the remarkable parallels between his willingness to get into what he called "Good Trouble" to sacrifice his life to service for the Public good & that of Alice Paul.
His "Good Trouble" included: Sit-Ins & Marches & Peaceful Protests in acts of Civil Disobedience.
For his "Good Trouble" he was beaten, & arrested & almost died for Civil Rights.
Like Lewis, Alice Paul also sacrificed her life for Civil Service.
