Recently deceased NBA Center and humanitarian Manute Bol has been mourned by people from all walks of life since his passing on June 19th. On the court, he was alternately awe-inspiring and endearing; off of it, he was much more than that. This tribute to Bol, delivered on the Senate floor by Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kan.) is just the latest proof of how many lives Bol touched during his time on this Earth.
