Michael Vick: This is More Than About Football!

Hey People,

In the last few weeks, we have heard some interest comments from different people about Michael Vick. Tucker Carlson said that Vick should have been executed for the dog crimes he committed. Charles Barkley said that Vick served his time and hopes he does well in the NFL playoffs.

Everyone has a different opinion about the Vick situation. I think we all can agree that Vick's story is more than about Football. It is about the power of redemption.

Vick has apologized for his involvement in the dog fighting ring he promoted. He's paid his debt to society by serving eighteen months in prison.  As a professional in the locker room and family man off the field, he has worked hard to right the wrongs he inflicted in the past. Mr. Vick has served at a Boys and Girls club and speaks to children on behalf of the Humane Society warning them not to make the same mistakes he has. He's even expressed interest in owning his own dog in the future.

Will Vick ever get total forgiveness from everyone?  I don't know.

I do believe that the power of redemption has a way of changing people. That is a good start.
