Representative Elijah Cummings is what politicians should be. It's a huge loss for America. He was fighter for everyone's rights.

Re: Elijah Cummings

Rest in power, Congressman. We are a less enlightened and less compassionate America because of your loss. May your memory and good works be a beacon of light and hope for your constituency and indeed, the entire country.

Re: Elijah Cummings

Mr. Cummings passed away at Johns Hopkins Hospital at 2:45 a.m. from "complications concerning longstanding health challenges," his office said.

 

He hadn't returned to work after having a medical procedure that he said would only keep him away for about a week, The Baltimore Sunnoted.

I woke up stunned by this news. He is a Civil Rights icon and tireless warrior. RIP. Your leadership will be sorely missed.
