That was a nice tribute to Congressman Lewis. I look forward to reading your tribute to Herman Cain.

Congressman Lewis woods were well and good but his actions were that of a hack only interested in his own power and re election

You are correct. His actions spoke volumes. If only he would have mimicked MLK, then that would have left a legacy worth leaving. He chose to divide, what a shame.

I see reference to keeping mice out. Why do I see ships with disks on lines to shore? No one in an RV has tried this? We found that mice love bars of DOVE soap.

Thank you for your editor’s column not, beautiful. It is sad however that some see an essay calling for peace as political. August is Happiness Happens Month, and International Peace Month, my hope for all is to find your happiness in each day and peace for all.

Since you censored my comment like a typical left wing socialist democrat, I’ve unsubscribed from all your newsletters.

I’m leaving this in here so the vast majority of our readers, who are civilized, rational, considerate adults, can see an example of what we sometimes have to deal with. Editor Chuck Woodbury will write about this in tomorrow’s News for RVers newsletter. I invite everyone to read it. And goodbye, David. —Diane at RVtravel.com

I read this blog for RV related news. This is one of the only places left that I can read without all the political in fighting. Memorial’s should be in a more appropriate place.

Both were great men, but I DO agree that Caine deserves at least as much recognition.

He will never receive that because he was not a Demo****. (Yes, you were bleeped by Diane.)

Hi, jerry. Pursuant to your two later comments this evening where you asked us to remove you from our lists, after basically telling me what I could do to myself (the first time anyone has told me that, or even anything close to that, in my almost 74 years) for bleeping a derogatory word from your comment, and calling all of us at RVtravel.com derogatory names, and making a disparaging comment about Congressman Lewis, you have been removed from our mailing lists and banned from making any further comments. But to end our “relationship” on a positive note, I will leave you with these words from the late and great Congressman John Lewis: “”Walk with the wind, brothers and sisters, and let the spirit of peace and the power of everlasting love be your guide.” —Diane at RVtravel.com

Words are hollow, when your actions tell volumes. Diane, respectfully he divided much of the later part of his life. I’ve read extensively on him, and it is a shame he lost sight of MLKs vision.

The John Lewis letter is very enlightening however from what I see in the mainstream news and on social media today it does not reflect his intention. In today’s world truth is only what narrative the media and the social media platform is pushing. For years I have been saying these 2 statements, to quote myself “What was right a decade ago is now wrong and what was wrong is now right“ and “I can see that you are easily confused with the facts when your mind is made up”. Too many times people do not explore opposing views on subjects and only listen to one source, therefore they go through life with the blinders on. As a whole, my belief is that the news outlets and social media are very divisive.

Joe, he was a very divisive individual for the greater portion of his life. He should have embraced MLKs vision, however he did not. Sadly his record speaks volumes. The tragedy here is that most do not read the volumes. I understand recognizing him for what he did during the civil rights movement, and that is noteworthy, however, he chose to follow a different path for most of his life and was a very divisive person in his writings. History, under google is what those deem to what you should be fed. I implore all who seek the truth, to not fall into their trap. There will be harsh penalties for those who censor free speach, the very right Lewis used, but IMHO, was divisive in his words, later in life.

Thank you for the beautiful sentiment regarding the passing of Congressman Lewis. He was a truly great man, hero, and leader.

Yes Diane, Thank you. I will continue to “make good trouble” and always “carry a good book, an Apple, and an Orange” with me as I navigate the troubled waters of our current moment in time. Oh, and I always wear a mask too. : )

Be safe…
