|White House honors Rep. John Lewis|

President Barack Obama held a ceremony today at the White House to award 13 individuals with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Among the honorees were former President George H.W. Bush, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, author and poet Maya Angelou, financier Warren Buffett, and Georgia Congressman (and civil rights icon) John Lewis (D-Ga. 5).
Lewis has been an outspoken ally of LGBT equality during his time in Congress. He's also a personal hero of mine. To see him receive acknowledgment for his work before and during his tenure in the House is well-deserved. Congratulations, Rep. Lewis.
Check out a video recap of today's ceremony below (skip ahead to the 30:00 minute mark to see the footage of Lewis):
