Mike Vick Apology Posted On Blog

**GLOBAL GRIND EXCLUSIVE**

I’m sorry.  That’s the place where I need to begin.  My feeling of remorse.  I ain’t never written a blog before, so putting my thoughts down on paper is a challenge – however it’s a challenge I must face.   I can look a 250 pound linebacker in his eyes at the line of scrimmage and have no fear. But expressing myself when I know that there are millions of people who are so angry with me, and rightfully so, is a challenge unlike any other I have faced before.

What I did was horrendous.  Awful. Inhumane.   And I’ve no excuses for my actions.  It makes my heart hurt now to think about what I’ve done.  And I’m gonna be real honest, it took a while for me to get to this place.

Sitting in a prison cell didn’t make me feel remorse.  It was meeting so many animal lovers, speaking with them and looking them in their eyes. Staring at them.  Looking so deep into their eyes that I began to feel their pain. Allowing that pain to enter into my body is when I started to understand how bad it really was.   I have been trying hard to connect with people who feel this pain,because for my whole life I was disconnected from the suffering of animals.  And you might say, “come on Mike, how could you do those things to those dogs?”  And you’re right…I
ask myself those questions every day.  What kind of person does this?  How does a human-being treat dogs or any animal with such pain and cruelty? And the hard part for me is the answer to these questions.  Because the answer is ME.  And I am trying so hard right now to become a better person, because who I was, I am ashamed of.

Here’s the entire apology found on Global Grind.
