Dear Muhammad Ali,

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,

    THANK YOU for leaving this fantastic post. He was a fantastic human being. I am glad I grew up being able to watch his fights on tv and learn about his choices in life. He will always be ‘the greatest’ for me.
