Ali's Words...

“Parkinson’s is my toughest fight. No, it doesn’t hurt. It’s hard to explain. I’m being tested to see if I’ll keep on praying, to see if I’ll keep my faith. All great people are tested by God.” Muhammad Ali

Wow. Fuckin’ wow…I can’t really think of anything else to say…

Love 'em or hate 'em, no one can deny this guy knows how to get to you.

I’m seeing that fight first-hand with my dad. It’s a battle that, in the end, he will lose. There is no cure, only things (drugs) that can slow down the progression. That’s got to be the ultimate frustration. I admire Ali for his ability to keep on going as he does. Most would have given up long ago.

My condolences, brider. Best wishes to you and your father both through this…
