The year 2020 will definitely go down in history as one of the most unforgettable years with several landmark events in it. From the deadly Covid-19 pandemic to the passing of legends like John Lewis, Elijah Cummings, and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, many important things seem to be unfolding with each passing day. One another important upcoming event is the much-awaited United States Presidential election on Tuesday, November 3. 

With the recent demise of Ginsburg on Friday, at her home in Washington, the internet can't help but reminisce about the cultural and feminist icon. Several people on the internet came forward to pay their homage to her and John Lewis, and decided to honor these icons' life by voting during the upcoming Presidential elections. John Lewis and Ginsburg have fought relentlessly for the rights of minorities. A user tweeted, "This year we’ve lost many heroes. In the last couple of months, we’ve lost 3 strong individuals that fought for decades to protect & change the system for the better. Thank you for everything John Lewis, C.T Vivian, & Ruth Bader Ginsburg. #RipJohnLewis #RIPCTVivian #RIPRBG." "Within the past few months, we've lost John Lewis and RBG. They fought for us with every last breath they could muster. We need to return the favor; match their drive; maintain their legacy; and make their vision of America a reality. VOTE!!! #RIPRBG #VoteBlue2020," wrote a user.



 



 

Another user urged, "Please everybody, do it for John Lewis, do it for RBG, for the millions of lives loss to COVID. Seriously vote as if your life depends on it." "John Lewis and RGB within weeks of each other is just wrong and brutal Joined by 200,000 other Americans is beyond too damn cruel. Vote for them, vote for the America they saw, Vote for all of us..," expressed a user. Another user shared, "I'm not scared. I'm pissed off. Fuck being scared, talk to every single person that you know and tell them why it's important to you that they vote for @JoeBiden. we can do this. do it for RBG. and Elijah Cummings. and John Lewis."



 



 



 

Several users also mourned the loss to the world with the passing of John Lewis and Ginsburg, and vowed to do everything they can to honor and pay tribute to these icons. A user commented, "I’m VERY angry right now. After all the heroes and fights we’ve lost, I’m devastated One thing I’m not going to do is give up RBG and John Lewis fought to the last breath. We ALL owe it to them to do the same. If you can quit now you were ALWAYS the weakest link #RIPRGB." "Y'all know what to do. People have been saying what's needed FOR YEARS. We don't stop until s*** gets done. John Lewis didn't. RBG didn't. And SO many others before/after them didn't either. It's not only about voting!  
Hold. People (incl. politicians). Accountable. Always," pointed out a user.
