Quote of the Week

I raised my voice in protest as a man… I didn’t do what I did as an athlete.”

    Athletes and celebrities these days don’t go outdoors let alone protest. If you pay them a couple million they might consider it. If the athletes and celebrities fight for a good cause, they act as role models and those whom look up to them will likely follow. Its just a matter of putting your ego as an athlete/celebrity aside and make your voice heard and your intentions be known.
    Thanks for the quote Ben.

    Well said Marwan. The quote was inspired by the current era of sports. Not a lot of men of character and fidelity in sports. We use the excuses of it just being entertainment and not being a role model, but at the end of the day it’s about being a man and standing for something.
