Path to Redemption


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.

I hail from the East and view the world as my playground. I'm opinionated. My dog is my co-pilot, but my cat navigates better. I'm only limited by my imagination. While there are terrible things that happen in the world I am responsible for making good things happen where I live, and that affects the world at large making it a better place.

  1. I too am sick of giving him space in my thoughts and I couldn’t have said it any better than you. Yes, he ‘served his time’ but I still haven’t seen anything he’s done to redeem himself that wasn’t completely orchestrated by his pr or the media?
