John Lewis, lying in state

John Lewis lay in state on the top of the Capitol steps on Monday night and all day Tuesday. We went to see it three times – when it began on Monday night, when it resumed on Tuesday morning, and when it ended on Tuesday night. All three times were memorable, so emotional to be there, surrounded by so many other people paying their respects.
