Muhammad was a true legend – a champion in the boxing ring, and a champion for millions of Parkinson’s families.
We looked up to him as an example of grace and courage in the face of great challenges. He will be missed.
“… I’ll tell you how I’d like to be remembered: as a black man who won the heavyweight title and who was humorous and who treated everyone right. As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him and who helped as many of his people as he could–financially and also in their fight for freedom, justice and equality. As a man who wouldn’t hurt his people’s dignity by doing anything that would embarrass them. As a man who tried to unite his people through the faith of Islam that he found when he listened to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. And if all that’s asking too much, then I guess I’d settle for being remembered only as a great boxing champion who became a preacher and a champion of his people. And I wouldn’t even mind if folks forgot how pretty I was.”

God came for his champion. So long great one.
Michael J Fox, wrote about ALI:
He Made No Apologies, But Understood Kindness. The whole world projected their fears for him onto him, and he took it all with love, confidence and humor
Thanks for everything CHAMP,
