George W. Bush honors John Lewis: ‘He believed in America’

The former president acknowledged some political disagreements with Lewis, but said both men were capable of “hav[ing] differing views on how to protect our union while sharing the conviction that our nation, however flawed, is at heart a good and noble one.”

“We live in a better and nobler country today because of John Lewis and his abiding faith in the power of God, the power of democracy and in the power of love to lift us all to a higher ground,” the former president said. “The story that began in Troy isn’t ending today, nor is the work.”
