Rep. John Lewis To Occupy Movement: Be More Focused
Congressman John Lewis compares his days as an activist with today’s Occupy movement.
Lewis suggested that focus isn’t present with today’s activists, such as members of the Occupy movement, who should pick a goal and stick with it. That’s what he and his cohorts did, he said.
“We were like trees,” he said. “We were prepared to give it everything that we had. I say to people today, ‘You must be prepared if you believe in something. If you believe in something, you have to go for it. As individuals, we may not live to see the end.’ “
