Michael Vick, Roll Model

One shouldn’t be afraid of the humans. Well, I am not afraid of the humans, but of what is inhuman in them.
Ivo Andric-writer

I enjoyed watching Michel Vick lose to the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs the other night. I only hope he keeps losing until the NFL can no longer find a place for him.

In case you haven’t noticed, I have a problem with Michael Vick: I’m a dog person. Oh, I know, he has done his time and the law says he can go on with his life. Sorry, I don’t feel that way. In my world, there are some things that can’t be made right . . . can’t be forgiven. Child molestation and cruelty to animals are two of the more flagrant examples of the unforgivable. Vick hasn’t molested any children, but his training of dogs to fight to the death, or simply killing any surviving losers, falls well below the humanity index, making Vick more of an animal than his victims.

Vick was graced with a God-given athletic ability. He was accepted as a top-tier quarterback in the NFL and is paid mega bucks for that ability. He had the wherewithal to set an example, to be the ultimate role model, but he squandered all that to stoop to the lowest level of human debauchery. Just because he has been released from prison and gone back to his multimillion-dollar salary, nothing has changed to erase the stain on his soul. He can never be a role model, and he is only an example of what is ugly and evil on this earth. If I had my way, Vick would spend the rest of his life in some obscure alcove of Hell, too ashamed to show his face to anyone in full possession of a heart, but that is just me.
