I don't have a problem with the guy for the simple fact that he's turned his life around, stopped being an immature punk, and he actually helps people. He's involved in numerous charities, gives wisdom to his younger teammates in the hopes that they can avoid the same missteps he took, and through it all doesn't take credit for accomplishments and remains humble.
WHY do people continue to harp on something that happened so long ago, and ignore all the good the man has done to redeem himself? It shows the lack of compassion, mercy, and understanding that we all would want if our worst decisions were put on display for the whole world to see.
[View Full Quote]I can understand the venom towards Ray Lewis if he's been the same type of guy he was back then, still getting in trouble and not understanding how his actions affect others. But that isn't the case here, why can't people forgive someone who didn't even offend them?
Great post.. especially the bold. I love some of the comments here. Everyone in this world seems so quick to condemn others, you see it all the time. Its a hypocritical world we live in. We've all made terrible mistakes that we don't wish others to take into account when they look at the entire picture of our lives. Yet we're still so quick to judge others and label them as monsters for their mistakes, even when they've turned their life around and have helped so many other people. Its silly stuff indeed.
