History has a way of forgiving some who have lied in exchange for the greater good. When and if this happens then is it possible that Armstrong's alleged indiscretions may be seen as stepping stones to the future of sports and human potential?
Lance now has the opportunity to become a powerful advocate for change. For all his faults, he has been a tremendous leader in the fight against cancer. He's not a despicable person and I'd love to see him channel his positive energy into a new cause.
Livestrong will survive and thrive. The millions and millions of cancer survivors and caregivers globally will also thrive because thrive is what we do. But Armstrong's children deserve more than anyone in this entire story.
Lance Armstrong did show some nerves, but very little sadness -- which is the emotion he should have been feeling if he was truly sorry for his cheating and lying. He also showed anger at the accusations, and defiance, which leads me to believe that he still thinks he was justified.
