Join the Push to Honor the Munich 11

While I’m in favor of the idea, I am bothered by the fact it has taken 40 years to see such a concerted effort.

It would have been far more impressive had this Herculean effort been made to commemorate the tragedy for the last 40 years at every Olympic Games.

Now, rightly or wrongly, the effort will seem more political than moral.

Which in itself is a tragedy because the 1972 Munich games needs to be remembered as the time the Olympic movement was violated, something that must never be allowed to be repeated.
