Change Agent

Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by getting in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble.  Voting and participating in the democratic process are key.  The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change agent you have in a democratic society.  You must use it because it is not guaranteed.  You can lose it.

-- John Robert Lewis (21 February 1940 - 17 July 2020), American politician and civil rights leader, in an op-ed written to be published the day of his funeral, New York Times, 30 July 2020
