Do what’s right, and challenge yourself to look past a tarnished image on Ray Lewis *Column*

Ray Lewis wants to walk out of the Super-Dome Sunday a Champion, that’s obvious, but what isn’t obvious is if he will do it.   Either way though, while I may not have graduated with a degree in LAW, some people will still be the judges, and will judge him.    They will look at him and say he has a tarnished image.    And they can do that.

Everyone can point fingers and judge that’s the easy thing.     But  I challenge you to do the tougher thing here.     Like I wrote on Lance Armstrong, try to find the good in him.  Heck, hope and pray that Jerry Sandusky has found Jesus in his heart.    You know why?   Because it’s the right thing to do.

– – It’s also something a certain society fails to accomplish something so seemingly easy everyday.      There are mentally retarded kids that are getting bullied, push around, and maybe even beaten up to a pulp just because they are different from someone-else not diagnosed.     This is a rather cruel society we live in,  and we have a lot to do with the way it is today.     If it’s not about money, it’s about using a girl’s body.    This is frowned-upon those who once lived in a better world.

The thing is all of us have trouble trying to do what’s right.

So do me a favor here, and challenge yourself to look beyond what you may see a “tarnished image”  on Ray Lewis.
