The Greatest

“I know where I’m going and I know the truth. I don’t have to be what you want me to be. I’m free to be what I want.”

Bro. Ali was intent on defining himself for himself - no matter the reactions or consequences. That's what made him the 'Greatest' outside of the ring. Too many of us shrink in the face of adversity or rather than deal with controversy or confrontation, even if it means compromising our ethics and beliefs -- or becoming someone other than our authentic selves... just to appease others.

We could resolve much of society's ills if we had less career politicians spouting crazy rhetoric and more courageous MEN and WOMEN like Bro. Ali whom live purposeful, faith-based lives devoted to community, charity, hope and the possibilities of the human spirit.

 

It's been a year since Bro. Ali returned to the Creator yet his good deeds lives on in his legacy. Shall we all continue to learn from him and continue his philanthropic efforts. "Service to Others is the rent you pay for your room on Earth." - Muhammad Ali

لله ننتمي إليها جميعا وإنا إليه سنعود
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'oon. {To God do we belong and to Him shall we return.}

Ma Salaama.
