Last night, members of Congress from both sides of the aisle came together to watch a screening of Selma.
Just a few years ago, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy had the privilege of walking with Representative John Lewis through Selma, Alabama, on the same path of the Selma-to-Montgomery march that John led.
It has now been 50 years since the Selma to Montgomery March. In the past half century, our country has grown and changed. And as a country we must honor those who so courageously faced state troopers and deputized citizens all to hold America up to its highest ideals of guaranteeing liberty and justice for all.
They truly made America a better place, and we are indebted to them.
