Commentary: 50 years later, Billy Mills still inspires dreamers

"During tough times, my father would tell me that I needed to have a dream in life, because it's pursuit of a dream that heals broken souls. He would say, 'You have broken wings, and if you follow your dreams, someday you'll have the wings of an eagle.'" - Billy Mills
