One of the first things I do in the morning is turn on the news. For some reason, I didn't turn it on right way this morning. I checked my phone first. I saw the terrible news out of Orlando. TV goes on. I was stunned and sad. I couldn't get up out of my chair so I covered back up and I watched and I watched. My community is now the subject of the worst mass shooting in US history.
I can honestly tell you that Muhammad Ali is the first famous sports figure I remember. His legend was already established by the time I was old enough to remember anything. Now the American icon and boxing legend has died at 74.
Kids today, geez! Well, this incident has bigger ramifications and reactions than just your average "person/kid looking down at phone" story. Though she has not been identified as of this writing, this West Point cadet has a lot of explaining to do after she was caught on video looking down at her phone while marching in formation to the academy's graduation ceremony. Check the 50-second mark, I'm speechless.
