Here’s your daily dose of sweetness.
Tybre Faw of Tennessee is 10. He’s in the fourth grade. He knows who John Lewis is, which probably puts him ahead of a lot of fourth-graders.
He wanted to meet the civil rights leader who was in Selma, Ala.,
yesterday on Sunday to mark the anniversary of Bloody Sunday, the 1965 march across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, where marchers were met with billy clubs, dogs, and tear gas.
So Faw and his family traveled to Selma and waited to meet a civil rights hero.
One can almost see the torch being passed.
Tybre Faw traveled 7 hours to see his hero, Dem. Rep. John Lewis, who was in Selma, Alabama, to commemorate the 1965 march for civil rights. The boy became emotional when they met, and Lewis invited him to march with him toward the Edmund Pettus Bridge. https://t.co/I12FROMZoZ pic.twitter.com/H6KRzwGnK0
