Mourners Pay Tribute To Their Hero Muhammad Ali Outside His Childhood Home In Louisville

Hundreds of mourners gathered outside Muhammad Ali's childhood home on Sunday to reflect on the life of a man who undeniably inspired a nation not only through his fighting in the ring, but how he fought for justice and peace. Ali died aged 74 late on Friday following a 32-year-long battle with Parkinson's disease. 

Mourners set out Sunday morning to pay tribute outside the little pink home where he grew up in Louisville, Kentucky.  All across Ali's hometown, the faithful headed to Sunday church services to mourn the loss of the Louisville Lip, the city's most celebrated son.  The city will also be the spot for Ali's funeral on Friday, an event that will be open to all and streamed across the world.  Hundreds of fans also visited the Ali center in Louisville Sunday to lay flowers and heartfelt messages to The Greatest Of All Time.

President Barack Obama led the tributes to the man whose personality transcended his sport when thanked the champ for gracing our time. Obama also phoned Ali's wife Lonnie to offer his deepest condolences for his passing and expressed how lucky he and the First Lady felt having met her husband. He told her how the universal heartbreak and outpouring of support following his death was a true testament to his enduring spirit and how he changed the arc of history
