Ray Rice takes out newspaper ad apologizing for his incident

Ray Rice, who was suspended last season by the NFL after video surfaced of him punching his then-fiancée in a hotel elevator, issued an apology to the city of Baltimore and to Ravens fans on Friday morning via the Baltimore Sun Newspaper.

“The last seven years that my family and I have spent in Baltimore have by far been the best of our lives,” Rice said in a letter issued to The Baltimore Sun. “From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all for the love and support you’ve shown my family and I throughout my football career. We’ll always be grateful for the love we’ve received from all of our fans and supporters, and for winning a Super Bowl.

“To all the kids who looked up to me, I’m truly sorry for letting you down, but I hope it’s helped you learn that one bad decision can turn your dream into a nightmare. There is no excuse for domestic violence, and I apologize for the horrible mistake I made. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me, and I hope to make a positive difference in people’s lives by raising awareness of this issue.”

I believe Ray Rice deserves a second chance. While I do not agree with hitting a woman, he deserves a second chance. If she forgives him who are we to keep holding him down?
