NOTES FROM COMMON COMMENTATORS' CRITIQUES:
-The Quote by Winston Churchill has always been attributed to him. The placement of Abraham Lincoln next to the quote was a visual example of Churchill's words and not meant to be attributed to Lincoln. As an example, the second quote by Winston Churchill at 6:17 is placed next to a picture of a firefighter but is not to be attributed to the firefighter. Rather an example of the great words stated by Winston Churchill. Thank you for those who have commented about this confusion.
-There are many amazing sports clips, quotes, and individuals that are not included in this video. None were left out on purpose and in no way is this video comprehensive of the great people who have accomplished great things and motivated others. (More videos to come later to feature more great inspirations).
-It is understood that sports accomplishments are generally not viewed as greater accomplishments than scientific, religious, social, economic, and charitable accomplishments. However, this video's theme is mainly set to sports. In no way is this meant to communicate the message that sports are more important than the latter. Don't read into it more than necessary.
-The fact that women are not included in this video was not purposeful in a sexist way, but rather it was because the video was made for an audience that, at the time, included mainly male sports enthusiasts. There are many amazing women in sports and outside of sports that have accomplished great things and are an inspiration to all, however, this video was not made to celebrate that. (Videos to come soon will cover many of these issues.) Additionally, the video portrays principally U.S. athletes and sports. Please do not be offended or believe that this is to say other countries are lesser. Other countries and other sports have amazing individuals and success stories that are inspiring but the original audience this was made for was more familiar with the U.S. and U.S. athletes.
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING
