Hollywood plans a movie soon on the Tuskegee Airmen.

Our President just saluted them with the Congressional Gold Medal - our nation's top civilian award.

This group of pilots and their crews served heroically in World War II.

They helped end segregation in our military.

They further proved that inclusion trumps segregation every time.

Regardless of the endeavor or project, include diverse input and contribution and it will be better.

Events like Montgomery's Unity Games this Saturday serve as reminders that uniting people of all walks of life, all colors and all backgrounds only enriches experiences.

Lessons learned from the courageous Tuskegee airmen should never be forgotten.
