Legends never die." ~ Babe Ruth 2016 sucked for celebrity deaths, we all know. The headlines are everywhere. Here's a list if you want to remember how bad it was. But what gets lost in the shuffle is that for some people, a piece of their childhood died too. Sure, Prince might not have been everyone's favorite singer, but for some people he was THE person who turned them onto music. I never was a boxing fan, came in at the back end of Tyson so I only understand the importance of Ali in the historical context. But for other people, he was THE reason they got into fighting, got into any sport. He was THE inspiration they needed to stand up (or sit down) against the war. Focus: Who are your legends? Living or dead, explain who inspired you in what genres/categories, and tell us a little about what made them legends to you. Alt. Focus: Who of the current sports stars, musicians, actors, scientists or otherwise "heroes" of today do you think will become legends? Make a quick argument for what they're doing that will put them in the history books.
