Congressman, Georgia's Fifth Congressional District
This negotiated agreement does not include every wish and want, but it has the capacity to change lives – for the American people and our beloved neighbors. From time to time, I say that we must not let the perfect be the enemy of the good.
Our children and their children will ask us what did you do? What did you say? For some this vote may be hard. But we have a mission and a mandate to be on the right side of history.
Wishing each and every one of you a happy and safe Christmas holiday. May the spirit of love and kindness fill your day.
Thank you for all of the kind birthday wishes. Each day on earth is a gift we must use to continue building the Beloved Community.
We were beaten, we were tear-gassed. I thought I was going to die on this bridge. But somehow and some way, God almighty helped me here. We cannot give up now. We cannot give in. We must keep the faith, keep our eyes on the prize.
55 years ago today, we were beaten, tear gassed, and trampled by horses. I thought I saw death. I thought I was going to die. I don't know how I made it back, but I know we cannot rest. We cannot become weary. We must keep pushing and pulling and find a way to get in the way.
Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. #goodtrouble
I was beaten, left bloody and unconscious so that every American has the right to vote. Friends of mine gave their lives. Do your part. Vote
