Really? You don’t want a 2nd chance??? November 17, 2009

My dad told me when I was very young that if you screw up and then get a second chance, you better give it all you’ve got because friends, society, employers, coaches, etc..rarely ever give you a 3rd chance.
Chris Brown, Michael Vick and countless others screwed up. That’s for sure! But, why are there people in the greatest country of all want to condemn them for life?
And, I think what perplexes me the most is that, especially with these guys/performers/atheletes, is why don’t we, as a society, push them to learn from their mistakes and give them a chance to redeem themselves so that they can take that experience and teach so many other people about what it took to learn from their mistakes? It seems like the more positive approach would be best served so that they can reach the broad audience that most of us can’t.
Look at yourself in the mirror….have you ever lied, cheated on your boyfriend/girlfriend, cheated on a test, had prejudice thoughts, lied to your parents, etc? And did you get caught and want a second chance? Of course you have and of course you wanted a second chance and probably got one.
O.k. I know some errors in judgement are sometimes somewhat worse than others, but, to you, at the time you got caught, didn’t you think it was horrible and you just wanted to climb under a rock? Imagine how these high profile people feel when they are dragged throught he mud in public and then they have to redeem themselves to millions of people? What must that be like…?
It just seems like we want to judge some people on a mistake they made and we expected to be forgiven for ours.
Think about it……u
