Be the Greatest by being kind.
Watching Muhammad Ali’s memorial was, on the most part, inspiring. I didn’t like the bombastic/political side. Ali got me interested in boxing as a kid. “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”
Check out this YouTube memoriam: Ali Tribute
Some favorite tributes from the memorial service:
There is no one as great as God. Even Ali credited God as the Greatest.
Here on earth, each of us can be great. Doing the little deeds to help others. Giving service to those around us. A smile, open a door, help carry groceries, …. All around us, everyday, we must notice opportunities to help. You have been helped now”Pay it forward“.
Follow the Golden Rule. The Golden Rule is found in some form in religions around the world. There should be more PEACE. Come on ya all. Be kind. If you can’t play nice, go to your room. We used to send our kids to the bathtub. The world needs a big bathtub.
