Tribute to Helen Joanne Cox
#Tribute to Jo Cox: "We have far more in common than that which divides us."
Nachdem was ich heute über Jo Cox gelesen und gesehen habe, war sie eine beeindruckende Sozialdemokratin. Es ist erstaunlich, dass mit auffälliger Häufigkeit Personen Gewaltverbrechen zum Opfer fallen, die beispielhaft ein selbstbestimmtes, freies Weltbild vorleben und sich mit hohen moralischen Ansprüchen für mehr Gerechtigkeit und mehr Miteinander einsetzen. Dabei braucht jede Gesellschaft mehr solcher Politiker!

#Tribute to Muhammad Ali
"He was respected for having sacrificed more than three years of his boxing prime and untold millions of dollars for his antiwar principles after being banished from the ring".
"Ali was as polarizing a superstar as the sports world has ever produced — both admired and vilified in the 1960s and ’70s for his religious, political and social stances. His refusal to be drafted during the Vietnam War, his rejection of racial integration at the height of the civil rights movement, his conversion from Christianity to Islam and the changing of his “slave” name, Cassius Clay, to one bestowed by the separatist black sect he joined, the Lost-Found Nation of Islam, were perceived as serious threats by the conservative establishment and noble acts of defiance by the liberal opposition."
