Hoyer Statement on Resolution Honoring Civil Rights Movement, Annual March from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama

I thank John Lewis for his service to our country, to its principles, to its values, to its people. I thank John Lewis for being my friend, and I thank John Lewis for allowing me for the ninth time to walk with him across that bridge, and as I do I will be holding the hand of John Lewis and holding in my other hand the hand of my 10-year-old granddaughter, Alexa.
