Second Chances

This year in sports, there have been 2 shining examples of people making the most of  a second chance.  Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton missed 2 years in the middle of the decade due to drug and Alcohol abuse, and came back with a tremendous season last season, and was named the American League MVP.  In Football, Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback Michael Vick spent 18 months in Federal prison for dog fighting,  has become a model citizen, and in having a monster season.  The moral of this story is no one is beyond redemption, and we need to be a bit more forgiving, both public figures, and friends and family in our own lives.
