Any story about the human capacity for love, I’m all about it. (Plus, Valentine’s Day is coming! 😉 )
It’s a touching thing to watch former Klansman Elwin Wilson apologizing to the “whole world” for beating Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) long ago. Lewis says Wilson is the only man who has ever sought his forgiveness.
The young Lewis orchestrated sit-ins, bus boycotts, and non-violent protests in the fight for Civil Rights. He suffered brutal beatings by angry mobs and had his skull fractured by Alabama State troopers as he led a march of 600 people in Selma, Alabama in 1965.
