    I didn’t know it was the first time this Herculean feat was accomplished! Wow! What a book and what a man!

  2. Miriam Lang Budin says:

    I rejoice in this celebration of the many achievements of Rep. John Lewis–an indefatigable fighter for human dignity–a man of action, as well as words.

    Lewis’ books should be printed in a larger trim size to make room for all the medals!

  3. So appropriate and so timely.
