I am fill with mixed emotions. While I do not want to give Micheal Vick any more time in my head, I find myself in a quandary. You see, once more this man is seeking the spotlight. His method is ‘The Michael Vick Project‘, a 10 episode series set to air on the BET network.
Look, the man has served his time. He has to earn a living. But it bothers me that he seeks to put himself in a sympathetic light when it comes to life. His track record speaks for itself.
I do believe in the power of repentance and atonement. But, both those principles are private and sacred. When you seek to rebuild your life, your honor and your name. Actions done without the limelight speak louder than actions with cameras following your every orchestrated move for a few months.
I believe what you do behind closed doors when no one is watching is what defines a person. Those are the actions that will seep out into the community around him and color the world. No need to bring the artificial construct of the media into it.
You can not build something from nothing.
