In Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

This inscription on the Eternal Light Peace Memorial at the Gettysburg battlefield makes me think of the passing this week of two American civil rights heroes, legends, and icons:

Congressman John Lewis and Reverend C.T. Vivian.

From Rosa Parks to George Floyd, they were fighters for us all until the end.

With firmness in the right, indeed.
