Hana Ali, one of Ali’s daughters, described her father’s last moments in a social media post earlier Saturday, saying his heart continued to beat for about 30 minutes after all of his other organs failed. She wrote on her Instagram and Twitter accounts that “no one had even seen anything like it.”
But the beating heart alone is far less than who the Greatest was. His Spirit will continue to bless us with humility, honor and power by his great example of service.
This is the week to meditate on Muhammad Ali’s great words, part of his lasting legacy.
He said: “He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
“All I can do is fight for truth and justice.”
