It is a shock to learn that revered Georgia Congressman John Lewis, a Civil Rights Icon, who marched with Martin Luther King Jr in 1965, is seriously ill with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer.
Lewis is a true treasure, a giant figure, a model for what every member of Congress should be like in public service.
The fact that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg survived Pancreatic Cancer in 2009, and that former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada has survived 19 months since Pancreatic Cancer surgery is a sign of the potential for survival, but most people do not last more than a few months, and many celebrities have been taken from us over the years by this cruel disease.
We all need to pray for Lewis, that he will be able to recover and continue his priceless work in the Congress in 2020 and beyond!
A former co-worker of mine has that as well.
