Congressman John Lewis and Myrlie Evers-Williams were especially inspiring for me. When you consider that they were 23 and 30 respectively during the last march, it makes you marvel at their dedication to the cause of civil rights.

    Corey Booker had a great quote about not taking for granted the strides previously made by civil rights pioneers (paraphrased): “My father told me not to walk around like I hit a triple. I was born on third-base.” Timely.
