    I watched John Lewis: Good Trouble - what an amazing role-model he was to us all.
    I also watched Tell Me More With Kelly Corrigan: "Bryan Stevenson" (PBS) He is a renowned public interest lawyer who defends minority people on death row, and has saved many innocent victims of unfounded convictions.

      I too was inspired by John Lewis: Good Trouble. With more people like him in government, our country would be in much better shape.
