Billy Crystal’s eulogy for Muhammad Ali

I came across this moving and yet funny eulogy given by comedian Billy Crystal at the funeral of Muhammad Ali that I thought worth sharing. I hadn’t known that they were so close for so long.

    Thank you for this.

    Sadly, when I talk to my students, they know the name the same way they know Martin and Malcolm; people who get talked about in February each year, but his greatness has already terribly faded.

    There is a truth in that, fame is fleeting and memories are short.
