Muhammad Ali - He Stood For Something

Just one post below this one, are several stellar songs by a wonderful artist named Ayo. The fourth song down the list is an inspiring one titled How Many People (really stand for something). When I listen to it, I think of those who are like Muhammad Ali. The kind of people who say what is really on their mind, without mincing words. Muhammad Ali stood up to the U.S. government and angry Americans who called him unpatriotic for not being willing to join the Army to go to war in Vietnam. This man spoke his mind, really stood for something on principal and chose to not follow blind. His greatest fight ever, in my mind, was against the U.S. Government as he fought, in the court system, defending his refusal to be a killer for the misguided government. Muhammad Ali was my kind of war hero. GC
