I would like to praise gymnast Aly Raisman for winning the gold medal for the women’s floor exercise.

But more importantly, I would like to praise Raisman, who is Jewish-American, for having the courage to speak up for those 11 Israeli Olympians who were executed 40 years ago at the Munich games.

Raisman said she would have supported a moment’s silence in memoriam, but there was none.

It takes a voice that is not afraid to speak out for what is right. Raisman is such a voice.
