Muhammad Ali Writes Letter to People Of Norway
Boxing great Muhammand Ali wrote a condolence letter to the people of Norway to express his sadness about the recent bombing and massacre in the European country.
The Chicago Tribune reports:
In a letter to the people of Norway written under his name, the boxing great says his “heart goes out to each of you as you deal with the unimaginable grief of your loss.”
Ali wrote that the richness of diversity is something that makes the world a better place and that no one should fear multiculturalism.
People, he said, have the same ideals no matter what religion or race they are.
“I see the same wishes for our children to have happy, healthy lives; I see the same concerns for others less fortunate than ourselves; I see the same desire for peace and dignity,” Ali said.
Ali, a Muslim, said those who commit unspeakable acts in the name of race and religion “fail to understand that we share far more with our fellow beings than those aspects that set us apart.”
At least 98 people died in the bombing and gun attacks in the Norwegian city of Oslow roughly two weeks ago.
