stuart, perhaps you are too young or unedcated to appreciate mohammad ali. perhaps you did not live through the turbulent sixties and the unethical war the u.s. carried out in vietnam. listen up. mr ali had vision, he had courage, and guts to refuse induction into the army. most white men got a deal because they married someone. or they went to canada. mr ali held true to his religious values and as a result, was striped of his heavyweight title. he lost millions of dollars and 3 years of fights .

finally, the supreme court ruled that lower count decisions were invalid. he stood for something good for people everywhere. l now he has created a center dedicated and active to support youth and promote world peace. he has great dignity and is surely among the most self-actualized human beings on the planet. and if you've ever seen his fights;he was graceful and quick and always played fairly. he is my most respected hero. thanks for reading this and please let me hear from you. dr. jacqueline clinton
