"You don’t have to look like an Under Armour mannequin to be an athlete. People probably think I don’t even try to work out, but I do. Just because you’re big doesn’t mean you can’t be an athlete. And just because you work out doesn’t mean you’re going to have a 12-pack."
- Prince Fielder
It’s funny how I have a better conversation in my head with myself, than I do with most people.
On this day in the year 1925, Patrice Émery Lumumba was born.
He was the first democratically elected prime minister of the Republic of Congo. He founded the “Mouvment national congolais” party and with that successfully helped his country gain independence from Belgium in 1960.
He was however executed a year later. It is important to note that The United States (The CIA to be exact), Belgium and the United Kingdom were all involved in his death.
Rest in Power.
