Freedom: the power or right to act, speak,or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.
Michael Vick’s new autobiography “Finally Free” set to hit bookshelves Sept. 4, 2012 will chronicle his fall from grace and rise back in the NFL. And yes people, Vick is free. Yet some of us won’t allow him to move on with his life.
I’ve read where people think he should have spent his life in prison and believe it or not some even wanted the death penalty. The dog fighting conversation stirs emotions from all sides – those angry at Vick and those who don’t understand why he had to go to prison in the first place.

But the man has paid his dues – literally. He went to prison; he lost time with his family and friends; lost sponsorships and a lucrative contract with the Atlanta Falcons; and was publicly disgraced.
In a recent interview, Michael Vick has said “I’m a different man.” I don’t know him personally but we are all witnessing a change for the better.
I appreciate the Philadelphia Eagles giving this man a second chance. And by the way, the subtitle of the football star’s book is “the power of a second chance.” Vick and some others believe he still has a lot of game left in him. Listen up Vick, the ATL has much love for you….well, I guess I can’t speak for everyone. So for those who aren’t ready for his book, “Finally Free” let me remind you the meaning of another word – Forgiveness.
Forgiveness: the action or process of forgiving or being forgiven.
