The Washington Monument is iconic. It represents the man that is considered the father of the US. yes, he had many flaws and there are many things I wish he had not done. But the monument is beautiful.

you can never forget your past. But sometimes you need to move forward and leave the past behind.

John Lewis, a bastion of American Civil rights passed away this weekend. I cannot tell you how sad that makes me. He was a voice of reason in a time of hardship. He was arrested more than 40 times. He spoke during the March on Washington, in fact he was the last speaker from that March still alive.

I understand that a human being cannot be bigger than life. That Washington, Jefferson and others had many flaws that make it hard for us to understand what they were thinking then.  But their reality isn’t the measure of a person. The reality is the measure of the impact that a person has or had.

I believe in the dream shared by Dr. King and Mr. Lewis. We have to stand now for the right things!
