Visiting Washington, DC annually at the NAIOP Leadership and Legislative Retreat, gave many of us thru the years the opportunity to meet on Capitol Hill with our representatives on critical issues. Rep. John Lewis always took the time meet with us, listen, ask questions and then graciously and humbly walk us through his wall of pictures of the Civil Rights Movement and History in his office. While the discussion included commercial real estate, it never failed that we would learn so much more from his wisdom and our meetings would touch each of us on a deep level.
He was always on the right side of history and will certainly be forever missed. It was our honor to be in his presence, and as we commit to Move Forward Together, his vision for hope and equality will serve as our guide.
