Mike Vick is back! What's your take??

Mike Vick is back!  What's your take??

In April 2007, Michael Vick was implicated in an unlawful dog fighting ring that operated over a period of five years. In August 2007, he plead guilty to felony charges, and was indefinitely suspended from the NFL.  He has served 23 months in federal prison, which caused Vick to lose his NFL salary and product endorsement deals.


While I am not a fan of football or dog fighting, I find it quite alright that Michael Vick has been given a second chance.  The most important ingredient in living a successful life is learning.  There are only 2 ways of effective learning; being taught and learning from mistakes.  Am I absolutely positive that Vick has learned from his mistakes? NO.  But what I can affirm is that like us all, Vick is human and will continue to make mistakes in life.  Our role as good human beings is to forgive and do all in our power to prevent repeat offenses from occurring.

Taking away a man's happiness is essentially depriving him of life.  Just imagine how much better this place called Earth would be if we allowed second chances and in our hearts truly forgave those that made incidental mistakes.

I think it is amazing that the Eagles are taking on Vick; perhaps the Eagles' owner can teach us all a lesson on how to understand a person’s faults and work to correct those faults.  I wish Vick success as I will be trailing the Eagles this football season - GOOOO EAGLES!
