he tears away from his eyes, Lewis said от блога на wff

Michael Jordan today released the following statement:As a proud American, a father who lost his own dad in a senseless act of violence, and a black man, I have been deeply troubled by the deaths of African-Americans at the hands of law enforcement and angered by the cowardly and hateful targeting and killing of police officers. Barcelona Marlon Santos Jersey . I grieve with the families who have lost loved ones, as I know their pain all too well.I was raised by parents who taught me to love and respect people regardless of their race or background, so I am saddened and frustrated by the divisive rhetoric and racial tensions that seem to be getting worse as of late. I know this country is better than that, and I can no longer stay silent. We need to find solutions that ensure people of color receive fair and equal treatment AND that police officers -- who put their lives on the line every day to protect us all -- are respected and supported.Over the past three decades I have seen up close the dedication of the law enforcement officers who protect me and my family. I have the greatest respect for their sacrifice and service. I also recognize that for many people of color their experiences with law enforcement have been different than mine. I have decided to speak out in the hope that we can come together as Americans, and through peaceful dialogue and education, achieve constructive change.To support that effort, I am making contributions of $1 million each to two organizations, the International Association of Chiefs of Polices newly established Institute for Community-Police Relations and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. The Institute for Community-Police Relations policy and oversight work is focused on building trust and promoting best practices in community policing. My donation to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the nations oldest civil rights law organization, will support its ongoing work in support of reforms that will build trust and respect between communities and law enforcement. Although I know these contributions alone are not enough to solve the problem, I hope the resources will help both organizations make a positive difference.We are privileged to live in the worlds greatest country -- a country that has provided my family and me the greatest of opportunities. The problems we face didnt happen overnight and they wont be solved tomorrow, but if we all work together, we can foster greater understanding, positive change and create a more peaceful world for ourselves, our children, our families and our communities.

But the biggest moment was being named Australian captain.Lewis vividly remembered looking up into the grandstand before the Test against France and seeing his father.It was pretty obvious that he was wiping the tears away from his eyes, Lewis said.I said to mum after the game, what was that going on with dad? Mum said he was crying. Dad said I was not, it was just dusty.That to me was a real indication that all the things I wanted to repay him for, that was a great way to do it as it was obvious what it meant to him that day to have his son running out as Australian captain.There were also eight inductees on Thursday night into the hall of fame, bringing the membership to 541.They are Emma Carney (triathlon), Kristy Ellis (surf lifesaving), Sharelle McMahon (netball), Libby Trickett (swimming), Harry Wells (rugby league), Bob Ellicott QC (sport administration) and Jack Newton (services to golf).
