ATLANTA, GA — A special prayer vigil was held Sunday for Atlanta congressman and civil rights activist John Lewis. A group of about 40, including City Council President Felicia Moore, gathered at the APEX Museum, reports WSB-TV.
Although Lewis announced his stage four pancreatic cancer diagnosis last month, he said then that he planned to return soon to Washington, D.C., to begin treatment and resume work on Capitol Hill. Last Friday the congressman was on the House floor to cast his vote with Democrats for a resolution that would limit President Donald Trump’s power to initiate war against Iran. It was his first time back on the floor since announcing the diagnosis.
