When two Americans raised their fists in the Black
Power salute in 1968 no one paid much attention
to the third man. After all he had not raised his
own fist though pinned to his chest was a button
demanding equal rights for all mankind no matter
what their color or creed.
The button-badge would become the cross Peter
Norman carried for the rest of his life.
His country, Australia, neither redeemed him nor
officially recognized he had not acted against the
spirit but in the spirit of the Olympic Games.
Australia’s greatest sprinter was never
allowed to run in another Olympics.

December 8, 2013       Nelson Mandela is dead and world leaders are jumping on his

waitress in a fast food restaurant where she earns enough to live decently and still
saves money to seek a job in New Zealand, Canada or even the U.S. once her
12-months Australian work permit expires....
