Today at 3:00 p.m. as thousands gather to say their final farewells to one of the greatest fighters of all time, Muhammad Ali, what comes to mind for me is the literal, spiritual, and figurative meaning of the word FIGHTER.
He not only fought in the ring, but fought for racial equality, religion, social justice, and flat out what was right in the world.
What do you fight for and believe in? How can we as educators fight for our students in and out of the classroom? Can you reflect on a time where you had to stand up and fight for what you felt was right?
Long live the champ. Rest in peace Muhammad Ali…
