President-elect Obama is going to be sworn in in about an hour.
We have come to see Congressman Lewis before we head to the inauguration.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Bok! Bok! Bok!
What is my son doing?
Samuel walked to the temple...
Praise the Lord!
Jacob, Esau, and their mother have just arrived at Congressman Lewis' office. Congressman Lewis shows them around his office and tells them stories about his childhood and days during the Civil Rights Movement.
Right now, we need people who are brave enough to fight for our rights.
I am sorry, but we do not serve blacks here.
As a boy, Congressman Lewis loved to talk with the chickens and acted like they were his family. When he learned how to read, he read the Bible to the chickens and pretended they were his congregation.
When he was a little older, Congressman Lewis overheard an interview with Martin Luther King Jr. on the radio. This inspired him to preach about civil rights in front of hundreds of at his church in Alabama.
Congressman Lewis attended a nonviolence workshop for blacks, where they learned how to protest without using violence. Some acted like they were whites, so they could see who had the strength to withstand the hatred.
The group would perform peaceful sit-ins at counters that do not serve black people. This displayed their deep disrespect to how they are currently being treated and how they are going to protest it.
