I'm back with the 30 Days of Truth. Sorry for the delay but I had a computer problem that prevented me from getting online.
30 Days of Truth - Day 14 - A Hero That Has Let You Down
Ok, this is another one I really had to think about. When I think of who would qualify as my “hero” my dad and my husband come to mind. They are my only two “heroes”. If this question is asking for a person whom I admire…well, that’s different.
I’m going with that. The first one that comes to mind would be Tiger Woods. I did, no, I still do admire him for this golfing ability. As an individual he has fallen off that celebrity pedestal I had him perched on. I have to say I was truly taken aback when his, uh, “activities” were made public. To me he was such a gentleman, a true man of character. He seemed above reproach. He was a superstar! People of all backgrounds and ages, around the world, looked up to this young man. He had so much going for him, a beautiful wife, adorable children, a stream of income with no end in sight, endorsements out the ying-yang and youngsters all over the land that wanted to grow up and be just like him. A true role model. Or so we thought. And then….it was done. He wasn’t the superstar anymore. He wasn’t the gentleman I thought he was. The beautiful wife and children are gone, the endorsements have been dropped, (some, not all) and his golf game suffered. And for what? Because he couldn’t keep it in his pants? Oh please! I hope
she they were worth it Tiger because they cost you dearly. Yes, I’ll still watch you play golf on TV only from now on instead of watching with admiration I’ll be watching with pity. You had it all and you let not only your family and yourself down, you let us down too.
This is the “hero” that let me down.
