Tonight is Thursday... & its the night I turn into a 13 yr old girl & get excited about 8:00... the Vampire Diaries are on.
I tell Ricky to leave me alone - dont even THINK about talking to me...
its my guilty pleasure of the week
Tonight is going to be different...
I'm going to watch Oprah & the interview with Lance Armstrong instead.
I'm going to take the fun, forget-thinking-Thursdays that I usually have & try to wrap my mind around Lance Armstrong's words... try to understand why he lied.
I have to say my opinion before I even watch his reasonings...
I'm not angry at him.
I'm sad for him.
I can only imagine the world of lies he has lived in over these many years.
He obviously had to continue the lies for so long that it got to him.
Even when people accused him, he still said, NO - I didnt take any performance enhancement drugs.... knowing he did.
What a tortured man he must have been to have continued the lie for so long.
I for one believed him... why? I dont know.
I dont know him personally so I have no reason to put my trust in him.
But you WANT to root for someone, dont you?
Especially someone who came back from cancer... someone who did so much for cancer research... someone who was American & we could all root for him together.
I really wanted him to be the real deal
But he wasnt....
& I dont really think he's an awful human being.
I think he just got caught up in it.
Caught up in the celebrity
Caught up in the pedestal he was on
I'm not perfect
you're not perfect
Lance Armstrong isnt perfect
At least he's finally telling the truth
I just pray that he finds some sort of freedom in the truth
& I hope he finds a grace of redemption in his future
Will you be watching his interview tonight?
Did you believe him all these years?
How many are just glad to see Oprah doing an interview again? (meeeeee!!!!)
