Caricature drawing of one the greatest football players of all time. Not just cause of his God-given talent but for the way he has overcome what would have taken the average athlete out. Not only did he overcome but exceeded ALL expectations and had an incredible year! I wish Mike Vick nothing but the best in the future and hope he eventually wins that good Super Bowl ring. My prayer is that he continue to stay humble and focused on God as he rebuilds his character, image, and faith.
On a personal note, it is amazing at the backlash he received for his acts towards animals. Not that he wasn't wrong, but I can name numerous HUMAN injustices that have not got half the negative publicity these animals got. I guess depending on who the offender is a animal's life can be viewed higher than a human. Wow. Also, it bothers me when people make the comment "I don't know if he's changed yet", or "I haven't forgiven him fully for what he's done". Quick answer....WHO CARES?!! Forgiveness is not yours to withhold. For all the secret mess people have stored in their closets no one is in any place to not forgive anybody. Only difference is his was exposed to the world while yours remains hidden. But guess what, God will still forgive you just as he has forgiven Vick. At the end of the day, that's all that matters. Keep ya head up Vick!

Wait for the Lord to handle the matter." -Proverbs 20:22
