"Because the Salvation army has responded to this controversy. And I'm going to read their response to you here as soon as I get it from my producer. So sit tight, let me get Manny from Tampa on the line. And then we'll get your reaction to all of this. I mean, can you help me understand why you think the Salvation army would take this path? Why would the Salvation army at Christmas time? Decide to distribute a 67 page guide called let's talk about racism. How about minister to people in need like you've done? Since 1891, Salvation army, why do you have to go down this path? Why do you have to do this? What's motivating you to do this? The Salvation army guide says, we recognize that it is a profound challenge to sit on the hot seat and listen with an open heart to the hurt and anger of the wounded. Yet we are all hardwired to desire justice and fairness. Can you imagine the Salvation army recommended that you read books? By Robin diangelo and ibram X kendi, these prominent advocates of critical race theory? Which of course, as you know, holds that America is fundamentally racist. It critical race theory teaches children to view every social interaction and person in terms of race. This Salvation army guide discourages color blindness. Isn't that what reverend Martin Luther King Jr. was all about? Judge people on the content of their character, not the color of their skin? Wow. Wow, one 806 5 5 Mike. One 806 5 5 6 four 5 three man he's in Tampa. Hey Manny, thanks for joining us today. How are you? I'm doing well in yourself. I'm okay, I'm just frustrated. What do you make of the Salvation army? What they're doing? So both my in laws are officers for the Salvation army up in D.C.. And I can promise you this is not the Salvation army. This is a rogue person doing this. They deal with it all the time. I believe your son is still affiliated with this outbreak on the correct. Most certainly is, and he's devastated as well. He's very frustrated. Tim to ask his majors, some to ask his majors, what they know about. So this is coming from THQ, which is in Atlanta. This is all rogue. This is not the Salvation or I can promise you is not them. Salvation army has released a statement, Manny. The Salvation army is defending their racism guide. They argue the reading here from this is from the Washington examiner. They're arguing the new guide is meant to encourage discussion about racism. They denied that they attempt to indoctrinate, but here's what they say. The Salvation army has occasionally published study guides on various complex topics, including race to help foster positive conversations and reflection. The hope is that by openly discussing these issues, we can discourage a more thoughtful organization that is better positioned to serve those in need. They're not they're not they're not saying what you're saying, Manny. This is not one rogue person. Yeah. Literally, both my in laws have been Salvation army also for 27 years or up in D.C. and as soon as I heard you say it. The first thing I did was text it and my father in law said this is not them. So I'm texting him exactly what you said. Well, please do. And Manny, it's all online. You can find it. There is again an official response from the Salvation army. I mean, and I can read the whole thing to you. It's three pages. But they are not denying. They say that our critics have claimed that we believe our donor should apologize for their skin color, and that the Salvation army believes America is an inherently racist society. Those claims are simply false. The truth is that the Salvation army believes that racism is fundamentally incompatible with Christianity, and that we are called by God to work toward a world where all people are loved accepted in value. Our positional statement on racism makes this clear. In this case, the guide, let's talk about racism was issued as a voluntary resource. Well, the resource encourages people to read books by committed critical race theory advocates. People like Robin D'angelo and ibram X Kennedy. The section of the guide is called what is whiteness? The section, the Salvation army discourages color blindness. So, again, what the Salvation army's official response is is to deny the claim that Americans should apologize for being.

"Professor. Congress is precisely only a fool a Marxist forward, try to refashion the centerpiece of all man's humanity, the alpha and the omega around something like class for Karl Marx or race for the modern CRT advocates. What could be more demeaning. What could be so contrary to Judeo Christian values? That's what Marxism does, from its classical form to its modern American forms were less Children of God than products of class, race and gender. Here live in quotes the very worst of them. Richard Delgado jeans Stefan Sick and D a N D. Angelo for whom races everywhere and everything as his racism. As the antidote to this dehumanizing world. You live in quotes Dr Wyatt T. Walker, who was very close to representative Excuse me to Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. And in his essay in 2015 when he wrote was Steve Kalinsky. Steve Kalinsky. Walker stated. Today. Too many remedies such as critical race theory, the increasingly fashionable post Marxist postmodernists approach. It analyzes society has institutional group power structures. Rather than on spiritual or 1 to 1 human level are taking us in the wrong direction. Separating even schoolchildren into explicit racial groups. And emphasizing differences instead of similarities. Unlike Dr King's vision of judging people by the content of their character, rather than the color of their skin. Walkers. Views of civil rights were rightly based on religious values, humanism, not Marxism and critical race theory. The roots of critical race theory are planted in entirely different intellectual soil. Walker out Begins with blocks with each person assigned to an identity or economic bloc, as in Marxism. Yes, says percent Professor as in Marxism. That is an Americanism. That's what Mark Levin understands so well, especially given previous works of his such as rediscovering Americanism. American marks and is quintessentially UN American. People in America professing this noxious junk, maybe Americans in terms of citizenship. With all the rights and liberties and protections afforded thereof. But they are not Americans the way the founders of this country envisioned. America is less a place that an idea, said Ronald Reagan. It is indeed The ideas of America as it was formed by the direct antithesis of the ideas. A car marks. And his perverse heirs who today pushed their insidious new forms of American Marxism.

Henry Louis Gates Jr. The noted Harvard scholar and host of PBS is Finding your roots has been telling aspects of the African American story for decades.

There's a kind of tension from the beginning and the story you're telling about around Christianity being the religion of the enslaved vers. And then becoming the religion of the enslaved but also a means towards their liberation. Absolutely. African Americans created a form of Christianity with a liberating God. And its center, a redemptive force foreign nation whose original sin was slavery. What black people did was take the forms of Christianity available to them and refashion them.

"One big media narrative is that Donald Trump is a bad man because he spoke from the White House. Valerie Jared, the former chief of staff, too. Barack Obama. She tweeted out that she was very upset Should the White House has never before been used as a political prop during a convention. It belongs to all of the American people, not just those who support one party has never been used as a political prop. I'm old enough to remember when Barack Obama left the White House up with a gay pride flag. After the obergefell decision. I'm old enough to remember when Barack Obama used the White House to film all sorts of campaign videos. I mean, I'm old enough to remember, In fact, when Barack Obama turned the White House into a place where he could watch his favorite musicians perform their favorite concerts. I'm sorry, the sort of new pearl clutching propriety at the uses of the White House for political purposes. I may not love it. It is legal. The White House, the Office of Government ethics. Was asked specifically whether Trump could speak on the South on the South Won is not technically a government building because it's a lawn and so they said, Yes, he can use it. It is worth noting that Ronald Reagan Announced his reelection bid from the Oval Office. That that Jimmy Carter announced his reelection bid from the East Room of the White House that FDR accepted his nomination in 1940 for the Democratic Party from the White House. So there is, in fact, President for this is the middle of a global pandemic makes it kind of difficult to assemble a crowd at a major major place. So negative number one was very, very bad that Trump spoke from the White House, and you're right if a Democrat did it. And Trump did it. I don't think it's wonderful. I think Trump could have figured out 1000 ways to do this differently. Is this going to lose trump any votes the pearl clutching from people who are poo pooing actual riots in America's major cities, also the media. We're very, very upset at the lack of social distancing. So the media play this wonderful, wonderful game where social distancing is super important, so long as you are a conservative or a church, color or person wants to go to school or go to your work social distancing is really, really important mask wearing is super important. If, however, you're out in the street, screaming at a police officer. Totally fine. So now this which the leftist news source they tweeted out about 1500 people were invited to the White House to watch President Trump's GOP convention speech mask or not required chairs replaced inches apart and there was no social distancing. Hashtag RNC 2020 First of all, we're noting its outdoors. Second of all the selected outrage with regard to masking its and social distancing is putting astonishing, Is it not? The selected outrageous so over the top. How do I know? Here's the headline today from The Washington Post March on Washington. UPDATES thousands gather at Lincoln Memorial to March for racial equality. March on Washington. Organizers expect 50,000 people together in Washington on Friday to call for a criminal justice reform and racial equity and to honor the 57th anniversary of reverence of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. I have a dream address from the same spot. Organizer's began planning in June after the funeral of George Floyd that recently lowered their crowd estimates, citing fewer buses arriving in the city because of covert plan to highlight the civil rights issues of today and bring well known speakers to address the crowd will also mitigating the spread of the novel Corona virus with strict safety protocols ahead. Yes, I'm sure I'm sure. Marge, Don't get off your get your knee off our next march on Washington. It's a little bit unwieldy. We'll begin with speeches from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, followed by a choreographed March, the Martin Luther King Junior Memorial in West Potomac Park events expected to end around 3 P.m.. By the way, there already pictures emerging. A lot of people are not actually wearing masks. A lot of people are grouped closely together, just like they were last night in the middle of these Lafayette Park protest. The media have nothing to say about that sort of stuff. So you know they're clutching at straws in there looking for a counter narrative when the best they can do is that by the way, the best attempted a counter narrative. Was a woman into Andrea Bernstein from WN Propublica last night, Ivanka Ivanka Trump spoke at the RNC and really mean Ivanka Trump is fine. And you know, I don't know that she had anything special to say. Other than Trump is their dad. But Ivanka, at one point was talking about her three year old daughter. Making a Lego model of the White House. Here is what Andrea Bernstein tweeted quote. Ivanka Trump has tweeted a photo of her son, Joseph. Sorry. It's her son, three year old with his grandfather at the Resolute desk with the Lego White House. I've asked the White House if three year old Joseph indeed built it of his own initiative, and if he had assistance Will tweet reply. If when I get it. Wow. I mean, that is some intrepid Woodward and Bernstein level journalism right there did the three year old bill the leg a White House of his own initiative. Wow. They're on top of the guy's so the counter narrative this morning are not enough social distancing at the White House. Also bad for Trump to use the White House's backdrop. Also did Ivanka's three year old son, build his own leg. A White House slow clap from trumpet media slow clap for these people who continue to maintain without evidence that what happened in Kenosha and the shooting was a white supremacist who went there for blood. Cops are routinely out their waking up in the morning and killing black people. And that all of this is Donald Trump's fault. The's reporters. They're so good what they do. We'll get to that in a moment. But first every time a conservative judge gets confirmed. That's a good day for the country. If you're like me, you don't get sick of winning. But the most favored nation order would dictate foreign price controls directly from countries with socialized medicine, and they sound good may sound like you're lowering prices. What you're actually doing very often is getting rid of all incentive to research and development. There's a reason most medical patents happened right here in the United States. We need to get other countries to pay their fair share. We don't need to artificially take money out of the pocket of the company is located in the United States. There's still time to stop the favored nation order. Let's get America winning again paid for by Americans for tax reform.

"To throw controversy into the process by throwing doubt into the prospects of widespread, accurate mail in balloting. But is that message going to hurt Republican turnout and participation? In. I spoke on Skype with the Washington Post national political reporter Amy Gardner. I would say that it's actually not only fear, but some evidence that it's already starting to happen. And that is that his rhetoric maybe actually discouraging his own supporters from using mail balloting to vote this fall. The evidences in polling that shows that Democrats are overwhelmingly requesting mail ballots over Republicans in states where that's tracked. There are anecdotal stories from Republican officials in the states who are hearing from voters when they put out ads like on Facebook or do town Hall meetings. Please register to vote and vote by mail. If you're not comfortable voting in person, and the feedback they're getting from these individual Republican voters is How can you be promoting that President, Trump says it's right for fraud. We're not going to do that. So those are the big data points that this is actually happening. It's no longer just a fear. It's evidence that Republican turnout is potentially going to be lower as a result of his rhetoric is their speculation that the male in voter fraud questions or simply something that President Trump and his team know that the base will support no matter what if it's true or not. And then it's a way to catch down on an election that president knows he might possibly lose. There's certainly speculation and it's not only on the part of Democrats we heard from people inside the administration who said that they speculate that one thing that President Trump maybe doing here is sowing mistrust in the results. And if his rhetoric does discouraged Republicans from voting this way, that means the majority of the absentee ballots will be Democratic, that could set him up to undermine the credibility of those results. On those lines. Is there any worry that we could see some real trouble once the presidential election results are in, and if the president loses? Could this be the president laying the groundwork for his argument to stay in the White House and not leave until this is settled? One thing that we know is that absolute ballots take longer to count, and in some states, they're not even allowed to start counting them till after polls close in some states, folks are allowed. To get their ballots in eyes so long as they're postmarked by election Day. You know, in some states as late as the following Friday, and so, depending on how close the election is, we may not know the results of all of the states where abstain, ballots are still being counted. And and we will know the results of in person voting. So the long answer to your question is, it certainly seems like he is setting up a scenario in which he could question The result again.

And if his rhetoric does discouraged Republicans from voting this way, that means the majority of the absentee ballots will be Democratic that could set him up to undermine the credibility of those results along Those lines. Is there any worry that we could see some real trouble once the presidential election results are in, and if the president loses, Could this be the president laying the groundwork for his argument to stay in the White House and not leave until this is settled? One thing that we know is that absolute ballots take longer to count, and in some states, they're not even allowed to start counting them till after polls close in some states, folks are allowed. To get their ballots in eyes so long as they're postmarked by election Day. You know, in some states as late as the following Friday, and so, depending on how close the election is, we may not know the results of all of the states where abstain, ballots are still being counted and And we will know the results of in person voting. So the long answer to your question is, it certainly seems like he is setting up a scenario in which he could question The result again, That's the Washington Post National political reporter Amy Gardner, talking about some worry among GOP leaders about President Trump's skepticism of mail in voting in the impacts possible on turnout. It is 8 43 lawyers for the Manhattan district attorney's office, telling a judge today that it's justified and demanding President Trump's tax returns. They cited reports have quote extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the Trump Organization. Attorneys for the president, however, say a grand jury subpoena amounted to harassment District Attorney Cy Vance Jr seeking eight years of Mr Trump's personal and corporate tax records, But he's mostly quiet as to why other than citing payoffs to women who allegedly had affairs with Mr Trump A hand written letter, written by Rosa Parks, remembering the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr is work in the civil rights movements is now up for sale for $54,000. The letter, dated October 6th, 1981 was sent to a Mr Kessler and more than a decade after King's assassination. In the letter.

Rep. John Lewis Makes Final Stop in Atlanta

"Rights activist and icon who became a moral force in the United States. Congress will be laid to rest. Today. He's been celebrated in a series of memorials this week and this past Sunday, he received a hero's sendoff in his native state of Alabama. And on Monday, Congressman Lewis was honored in Washington, DC It was an emotional Ceremony with lawmakers. His colleagues Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, played a portion of a speech that Lewis gave to graduates at Emory University in 2014. As young people. You must understand that there are forces that would take us back to another period. But you must know that would mark warned by way made too much progress and we're going to make you some step back. Some delays some disappointment, but you must never give up. I give in. You must keep the faith and keep so eyes on the prize. That is so calling. That is your mission That is tomorrow. Obligation that is oh, man. They get out there and do it getting away. Lewis lay in state in the Capitol Rotunda following the ceremony, making him the first black lawmaker to receive that honor. And today, Congressman Lewis comes home to Atlanta, Georgia. The funeral service is being held at the historic Ebeneezer Baptist Church, where the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr was once co pastor and joining us Now is Emma Hurt. She's a reporter with our member station W. A. B in Atlanta, and she joins us live from outside of Ebeneezer Baptist and Emma describe what it's like there where you are right now. Hi, Emma. Can you hear me? Emma will be joining us shortly. She is outside of Ebenezer Baptist Church. Now let's go to Debbie Elliot. We'll check back in with Emma. And just a few moments. Hi, Debbie. How are you? I am good. I know that you spent a lot of time in Alabama over the weekend. There were several memorials and services. It was quite a scene. Right. You know, I think the thing that stands out the most was was when he was in Selma and his casket was on this horse drawn carriage. And it crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge, of course, that iconic place where he was met with state troopers and sheriff's deputies who beat him up in a peaceful march for voting rights. Back in 1965 and people had come to sort of witness him make that Symbolic final crossing. Yeah, you've been You've known the congressman for for many years. You spoke with him back in 2015 at that. Edmund Pettus Bridge. Tell us about that. Yes. So this was in advance of 50th anniversary celebrations marking You know, 50 years since the Voting Rights Act passed because of that horrible incident on that bridge. The nation in the world really became aware of the brutality against African Americans who were pushing for equality in the American South. And so I met him there. We stood at the foot of the bridge, and we had a conversation about what it was like back then. And let's listen to a little bit, and he describes what happened on that came before. Beating us. Shrimping with horses. Releasing the tick and I was getting here. A state trooper with the night stick. My legs went from under me. I thought I was going to die. I thought I saw death. He thought he saw death, You know, and this was a moment where he had been that the the sheriff's deputy in the state troopers told them you have to turn back. We're not going to let you march to Montgomery. And they asked to kneel in prayer and as they went to kneel in prayer before they were going to turn back and go back to their churches. They were told. The meeting started. Tell me what's so powerful about that moment in history is that it was it was. It was a time where people were able to see for the first time the brutality. Those images were so powerful. It was labeled bloody Sunday and it sped up the passages you said of the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Debbie will will come back to you a little later to talk more about that. That's NPR's Debbie Elliot. We now have with us in the hurt. She is a reporter with our member station W. Abe in Atlanta, and she's outside of Ebeneezer Baptist Church where services will be held today. And Emma describe for us what it's like for you out there right now what you're seeing. Okay. Hi, Emma. This is Tanya. Can you hear me? Hi. Yeah. Can you hear me? I can I know that. It's It's quite a crowd. Okay? Can you tell us a bit about what you're seeing out there? I'm seeing I'd say about 200 people out here and we've kind of got to groups. We've got the people that are starting to gather at the Jumbotron, which has been set up right outside the church. I'm waiting to watch the service live there. And then we've got a crowd of people who are who are welcoming people as they arrive, welcoming the VIPs on presidential watch. Right now, I would say, waiting waiting for the three former presidents who are going to attend today and speak and the mood here is is really. I mean, it's it's serious, but it's also so joyful. It's about singing, and the stories that people have been telling me are just really powerful stories of how much Congressman Lewis meant to them. How much his message means to them in this time. And how much they want their Children and their grandchildren to make sure to remember him and what he stood for. What's really powerful, a swell about his home state of of his home state of Georgia and the city of Atlanta. Is that so many people felt like they knew him because they met him. You're hearing all of those stories from folks, I'm sure their interactions with him. Ebeneezer Baptist has so much history is I mentioned earlier, Martin looking Junior was a co pastor their share with us the significance of that church. Well, this was this was more Luther King Juniors from church. He grew up in it and was pastor as you said. It was also John Lewis's Home Church, where his wife's funeral was held in 2013. And it's really special. I think for these two figures overlap in this In this part of Atlanta to on Auburn Avenue, which is really the centre of Black Atlanta life, and some would argue the center of the Civil Rights movement and the two figures. I mean yesterday what was so powerful about Congressman Lewis lying in state in the Capitol in Georgia was that this was an honor denied to Dr King when he died. So I spoke to people who said I'm here because of all the people like Dr King who were denied that honor. And here we are giving Congressman Lewis most them may be the most honor. That we can right now. Sure, Let's listen to some of those folks that you spoke with you. It was amazing. It was amazing. All people on the young people. A lot of my friends has passed away. But I remember him from there. So that's why you mentioned This church being in the Hart. I just want to tell you that was Patricia Spicer, who's here, and she was talking about seeing Congressman Lewis speak at the 1963 march on Washington and that that's why his words were so powerful then and grabbed her then and she had to come today. The body of John Lewis was brought to Atlanta yesterday, and as you mentioned, it passed a number of important landmarks in the city. Walk us through. Some of those final landmarks that this journey to finally to Ebeneezer Baptist Church. There were there were quite a few stops because, as you said, Congressman Lewis has been such a presence in his district for, you know, 30 plus years. There was a pause at the Rainbow Crosswalk in Midtown, which you know, celebrates LGBT Q. The LGBTQ community here they passed by his downtown congressional office and a major street here that was renamed after him in the John Lewis Freedom Parkway on DH. It was there was also a big stop at a mural that you, Khun see driving down the interstate that runs through Atlanta. It has a picture of John Lewis and the words hero and, you know, it was really powerful. Tio. Watch him land for the last time in Atlanta and to watch him, you know, make his his final journey around the city. That's Emma hurt. She's a reporter with our member station. W. A. B in Atlanta. Thank you so much. Thank you. We're going to bring in another voice to our conversation. Remembering today the life and legacy of Congressman John Lewis Bishop Leah Daughtry is with us. Now. She's a political organizer and strategist. She ran. The Democratic National Convention is in 2008 in 2016 and she is the presiding prelate of the House of the Lord Churches. And there is perhaps no one better to talk about the intersection of faith in politics in this moment, which is what's so much of John Lewis's life really represents Bishop. Doctor. Thank you for being here. Good morning to you. And thank you very much from including this conversation. I guess I would just start by asking where your thoughts are this morning. Oh, you know, in the it's Ah, it's a powerful day. In the African American tradition. We call this the services home going And so they are mix of sorrow and sadness, but also great joy, particularly when it's someone like Mr Lewis, who has lived his life in such an exemplary way and in keeping with the principles of his faith that we know that he And our tradition. He's going home to be with the creator. And so we rejoice in bed and in the deeply held idea that we will see him again. So the mix of emotions on and I'm looking forward to the servants and being able to worship with those who have gathered To celebrate his life. The the word and his faith came before politics, did it. Not that was with what guided him first? Yes, yes, And I think that's so instructive for all of us who are people of faith. He was deeply guided by the principles of the face that he held so deeply and so closely and though that is what informed him and informed his action. Informed his decision to get involved in the civil rights movement on then to pursue a career in electoral politics. It's because of the ideals of of of our faith of our share faith that God intends for all of us. To live a full and abundant life. It holds us equally ah, in God's eyes and ah, divinely created and therefore in endowed with these Possibilities of being hole and equal. And then we have an obligation to pursue of society that sees us as God. And so for John Lewis that meant getting involved in the civil rights movement. That meant going on the bus boycotts being part of the leadership because it was he was pursuing the principal's off his face. And then in his later life, Of course, he came to Congress again, seeking ways to create a just society, a beloved community that treats all of its citizens equally. That has got had intended them to be he. It was almost a joke near the end of his life. How often he was asked to talk about preaching to chickens as a child on how readily he wanted to share that story, right? It was, he just he reveled in it of the idea of Off the joy he had as a very young man. I mean, eight years old, even sharing what he believed to be the most important important message there, Wass and and it helped him. Negotiate through through Washington. It helped him find ways to communicate with people with whom he disagreed. This's a very important part of his legacy is enough. It is it is, you know it and it tells you how deeply held his faith was. You know in these days, particularly when people are chasing followers, and ah likes and so forth on social Media network to think of this young man who who so loved his face. It was so impassioned by that any audience any Opportunity. He had to share his fate. Even with the chickens, Wass and was a chance to home his craft was a chance to get his ideas out was a chance. The tests, cadences and rhythms of words was a chance to share was the chickens and with those around the pick of the air, the grass the field how passionate he was about things that he believed and then bringing those ideals to Congress and understanding again. The people I help The idea of our faith that God has created a so equal And so if this idea that you don't have to be just like me to be just like me, there's something we have in common with each other. And if we can just talk if we can just be in conversation, we can see each other perhaps here because we may not still agree, but at least The tendency to demonize the unknown goes away lesson diminishes in the conversation. And who could refuse the conversation with Mr Lewis, who could refuse to just sit and talk and listen, and he was as good a listener. As he Waas a conversationalist. So you know, I think the Congress was richer for having him there on the Congress was Richard that his colleagues were Richard for just being able to be in conversation with someone who has deeply held ideal of deeply held conviction and experience. We should point out. Three former presidents are expected to get the memorial today. Bill Clinton. Barack Obama and and George W. Bush. I mean, just exemplifying the way that he he was very firm about what he believed and believed in his party, but he would work with Republicans if it meant Getting getting through the legislation he thought was most important. That's right. I mean, red and blue. These sorts of lines. These artificial divisions that we create among ourselves to categorize each other didn't really existed. Mr Lewis's lexicon. It was all about the humanity of people, and so has admit moving communities forward if admits Getting everybody the rights they deserve. Then he was willing to have the conversation. He was willing to be engaged and involved. And we see that in the folks that are going to speak today that are going to be present today at the tone and the tenor of the service, which he himself Designed. He spoke to his his closest staff. A. Stephen knew his time was shortening and said, who he wanted to be there. And what's the one of the elements of the club is to be what we see. Today is of Mr Lewis's own crafted bishop. Doctor, Can I ask one quick question if you were involved in the ceremony today, Realism putting you on the spot. But is there scripture that you think represents this moment, something you can point to that that carries the weight of history with it, but also Is about hope is about the future. You know, The thing that comes to mind for me is the passage and Hebrews. There's a chapter the faith chapter. We call it. Chapter 11 that talks about all the icons of our faith. Abraham and Sarah and getting and so forth on a long litany and in the middle of verse 13 says these all died in the faith, not having received the promises. But having seen them afar off, and for me that speaks of the hope. That was Mr Lewis's life. He stood on the shoulders of those who went before who didn't see freedom who didn't think the achievement of our civil rights. He followed them and he lived his life in such a way that he advanced the faith. He advance the causes, but he didn't see all of the achievement. And now we come behind him on continue his legacy. So he believed he held these convictions didn't scenes didn't see everything he fought for comes repair, But he still believed he still continue fighting. And henceforth Scripture goes on to say there was laid up for me A crown of righteousness was the Lord. That right? Justo shall give me on that day. And not to me only bought to all those who love disappearing. And so we look forward to seeing the two of us again in the future. Bishop Leah Daughtry. Thank you so much for sharing your reflections with us on this day. Thank you. Yes, very powerful. Let's go now to NPR. Congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell and NPR's senior editor and correspondent on the Washington desk. Ron Elving. Hey, guys. Kelsey. Good morning. We've heard so many powerful tributes from people throughout the country and the world. But But Louis is home state of Georgia. His presence and work had an especially profound. Meaning for his home state of Georgia for his district. Tell us a little bit more about his time there. You know, I am reminded of a couple of really, really standout moments of. I think one of the things that I think about a lot right now is the tribute that that they delivered for Johnny Isakson, who was a Republican senator. Of from Georgia, who retired last year, and in 2019 it was in November. So just just so a bit ago, Johnny Isakson was being was being honored and John Lewis Delivered this speech explaining how they could work together and and how there was an opportunity for anybody to find spaces where they agreed. And then, at the end of his speech, he walked across the Isaacson, who was in bad health and who had had trouble with his spine and said I will come to you brother and walked over and gave him a hug. That was really very much representative of the way. That John Lewis approached, you know, working on problems was what he wanted there to be bipartisanship. He wanted to be the person who came across, walked across and shake somebody's hand gave them a hug and said We can get something done here. He was also the kind of person who, whenever you saw him in the capital. There would be some person some tourist or a constituent who wanted to come and talk to him, and there was always had the time he had the time to tell his story had the time to talk to people about their story. He was extremely generous with his time and his constituents were known to come up to the capital and spent time directly with him. There was never a moment when it team like he was bigger than anybody else. Yeah, it's been Ah, so enriching and so fun over the last week to hear how so many people that I personally no have have met John Lewis, whether it's in Washington whether it's in Atlanta. New York Across the country. People have had a chance to meet him, but also have these intimate one on one conversations with him A CZ. We've learned he never turned anyone away. He was always willing to stop and have those conversations. One of the things that jumps out to me was a story about Congressman Lewis. When Hey, was in his district and he would spend a day doing a job in the district so even way back in the seventies, he would do things like drive a ups truck for a day to get a sense of what his constituents were up against. That is something that so many people feel is that he was of the people. Absolutely, and a lot of members of Congress that I speak to say they learned from that approach. They learned from John Lewis not just from the work that he did in civil rights, but the way he had a relationship with his constituents the way that he continued to speak about issues that meant something to him and then became active in them. I am reminded of the sit in on the House floor. On gun violence. He led House Democrats in a sit in and following. I believe the pulse shooting and they said that this was not a time when they could leave, and then he wanted to be the person who, you know who did the good trouble that he always talks about. He did not want to just be a person talking about it. He wanted to be a person involved in it. And you know so many members of Congress on Democrats and Republicans who felt inspired by that personal connection to his beliefs. The service eyes expected to begin shortly, and about 10 5 or 10 minutes. Ron, I'd love to go through with you what we can expect for today's service. But I want to talk first about Lewis's time as a civil rights activist, part of the movement back in the sixties. We expect to hear a lot about that today during the service, right? Yes, indeed, his life traced if you will, the trajectory of the African American experience over the last 70 80 years in American history. He was one of the group sometimes referred to as the Big Six, of course, beginning with Martin Luther King, whose name will be invoked. Many times today, but also Whitney Young of the National Urban League. Roy Wilkins of the CP. James Farmer of the Congress of regular Racial Equality and a Philip Randolph from the Pullman Porters Union. They were in many respects the Giants. Of the civil rights movement, as it took shape after World War two and rose in the fifties and sixties. Of course, John Lewis was there for most, all of it. He was part of the citizens at lunch counters in Nashville. He was one of the original 13 Freedom riders in 1961 integrating bus travel in the south. He was the youngest speaker on that day in 1963 when the march on Washington for jobs and justice featured Martin Luther King's I have a Dream speech. John Lewis spoke that day was the youngest speaker. He's the last person surviving from the speakers Dyas that day. And then, of course, the 1965 moment we have referenced Many times his beating on the Pettus Bridge. And, of course, his career in Congress, As Kelsey has described and then his links to the Black lives matter movement, which he paid tribute to In death as his cortege was coming to the capital earlier this week and paused on black lives matter Plaza in front of the White House to pay tribute to the movement and the people who are carrying forward his ideals today. Yes, And as we
