Dikembe Mutombo embodies the realization of a free society. He grew up in a country without those freedoms. Lincoln was one of the first Americans to set about redeeming this country from the oppressive tragedy of slavery and racism. More than 100 years later, we have a long way to go, but we must recognize and honor those who starts us on that path to redemption.
