Dear Muhammad Ali (a.k.a. Cassius Clay, a.k.a. The Louisville Lip, a.k.a. the Greatest Of All Time),
THANK YOU for showing us mere mortals what greatness – and near perfection – actually looks like. For allowing us to witness a fellow human being at the literal top of his game.
THANK YOU for being unique, outrageous, humble, bombastic, brilliant, verbose, fanciful, quick-witted, entertaining, and a real, genuine leader.
THANK YOU for never bowing to political pressure, societal pressure, or misguided external pressures – no matter how intense.
THANK YOU, Muhammad Ali, for always Being You…
Much love and respect,
Floating Butterflies & Stinging Bees
