Clay Aiken woke up on Saturday morning and posted a lovely Instagram:
One of the greatest honors and the blessings of my run in 2014 were the chances I had to sit and talk with @repjohnlewis by phone, in NC, and in his office in DC. He really was the last remaining American hero we had. He will be missed, but his legacy will live on longer than most anyone’s.
If the national discussion is going to remain on statues, I think it’s time we started talking about erecting one of him.
