I would not say fitting. More like very sad. As in, this is very sad that it took so long for a country to recognize the leader of a minority; a leader who put is personal freedoms on the line for his beliefs; a leader whose only hope was for a better life for all Americans to be recognized.

They didn’t ask this kid. However, If they did, I would say that recognizing him for his accomplishments and legacy is much more important than celebrating the lives of some expired “heros” whose only virtue and legacy is … answering a call to arms. Peace before war, is my opinion.
