Millions are mourning the death of boxing legend Mohamed Ali.
Ali was a cultural icon of his era transcending not only sport but the civil rights movement.
He was as widely recognized for this battles outside the ring, as he was inside.
Including refusing to fight in Vietnam in a war he staunchly opposed for religious reasons, and going to jail.
Although fighting was his profession, he did not want to kill.
His excellence in his sport allowed him the platform needed to inflict change.
Now he is being praised as a hero.
How ironic this man, who converted to Islam, is praised in today’s environment for his peace efforts.
While some in America want to ban Ali’s brothers and sisters from the country, because they are Muslim, and celebrate the same religion he did.
