Muhammad Ali will be laid to rest on Friday. The champion fighter and famed activist touched many lives around the world. Retired Georgia state trooper Johnnie B. Hall had the chance to meet Ali in Atlanta 20 years ago. He was part of the security team at the Opening Ceremony of the 1996 Olympic Games, and his assignment that night was an unforgettable one.
