Be The Greatest of All Time


Today my heart is filled with sadness as the greatest boxer of all time has been laid to rest in his hometown Louisville, Kentucky. It’s hard to believe a special man such as Ali who seemed larger than life is no longer with us. In an era, where rich athletes get into trouble with the law or squander their opportunity in the big leagues (i.e. Johnny Manziel).

Muhammad Ali had a special place in all our hearts. He placed important social causes before his own needs, risking his livelihood so people of all colors can live in equality. In amazes me how much of an impact he has had on this world.

Everyone including future generations should learn a lesson or two from the legacy left behind by this incredible human being. Like Ali, ask what kind of a difference you can make in this world. Start living a life worth remembering.

To the people’s champion Mr. Muhammad Ali, rest in peace brother.
