Time for Good Trouble, Necessary Trouble: Onward to Election Day, November 3

Following today's televised funeral for United States (US) Civil Rights hero, leader and Congressman John Lewis, Americans across all creeds and colors should seek to honor Lewis by getting into some good and necessary troubles onward to Election Day, November 3, 2020, especially amid an unprecedented suggestion to delay the elections from a sitting president fearing defeat because of dwindling poll numbers and his lack of leadership of the Novel Coronavirus pandemic.

The Georgia Congressman was eulogized by America's 44th President Barack Obama at the Ebenezer Baptist Church - a Church synonymous with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in Atlanta. Also paying respects to the Civil Rights icon were Presidents Bill Clinton, a Democrat and George W. Bush, a Republican. Another President Jimmy Carter, a Democrat, sent a letter of respect which was read at the funeral. 

Lewis marched along with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and other civil rights greats of the Movement in the 1960s. He bled for civil rights a number of times. He was also jailed on multiple occasions. Yet, from his youth to death, he championed civil rights and he extensively advocated for voters rights. Friends of Lewis said he considered the struggle for racial equality as a good and necessary fight. 

And with a new Voting Rights Act presently sitting before Congress, to re-name the Legislation to honor John Lewis would not be sufficient for a giant of a man, who made non-violence the center-piece of his 60-years in the Civil Rights Movement.

However, since President Donald Trump, facing waning poll numbers ahead of the November 3, 2020, Presidential Election, have had the audacity to suggest a delay to the election - something he has no power over, this November vote should become the rallying cry for all Americans from all facets of life to register to vote, and to honor John Lewis by exercising that voting right to remove Donald Trump from office and to preserve voter integrity within the American democracy. .
