Just finished being on the Imus radiothon. We have been involved in this wonderful cause for 8 years. I had a lot of people tell me to not go, it was too risky-we would look bad. I even had the press jump on me for being there “I thought you said you weren’t advertising on Imus?”. What can I say, this is for children, this is for families, this for people in need. Do I now need to think that people that are upset with him would also not want him to raise the $3 million he hopefully raises in these two days to help such worthy causes? That just cannot be, no one would say that the children and families he helps should suffer over this unfortunate situation. I have to say, he was so straight forward, so honest. MSNBC had pulled the show from airing last night after 6 p.m.-so it could not be viewed on T.V. today. He clearly told people to “stop whining” about that fact, he reminded everyone that it was because of what he said that “they were all in this position”. To see someone take such responsibility, to not hide behind anything or to look for some kind of excuse or to not try and move around the blame…well that was extremely important to me. It is quite obvious, this might be his last time on CBS (or at least that is what I hear)-well I was proud to be able to support him and proud to support the families and children he has tirelessly tried to help. The terrible statement cannot be excused, but he is saying the same thing about himself! He has one mission after the radiothon is complete, and that is to apologize to those girls and their families. He stated today on air that “no matter what I say, I cannot take away their hurt”, and he is so appreciative that they will allow him the chance to say his deep felt apology.
I said on air today that I thought Coach Stringer was setting the right tone, her ability to show such grace and forgiveness should be the guiding light we all try and follow in our lives. She is a true leader in my mind.
Well the show is over and I wish that much money is raised to do much good work…
