Flowers left for Jesse Owens
Jesse, I can't help watch your accpmplishments at the 1936 Olympic Games with tears in my eyes and a chill runs down my spine. What an incredible performance in the face of extra pressure from the political forces in charge of Germany at that time. Not only did you win four gold medals, but did so in commanding fashion. But I'm always aware that you were a winner as far as a human being is concerned. You epitomized what being an American is all about. Blessing on you sir. And thank you for representing America and making us proud. Even all these years later.
