Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen is a great entertainer who doesn't conform with what everyone else thinks he should. I have been watching him in various things since I was a young child. My first memories of him are from the movies "The Wraith" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".

He has had bumps in his life. They are unfortunately in front of the world because of the work he does for a living. If it were anyone else we wouldn't care unless we were directly involved and we sure as hell wouldn't be trying to tell a grown man how to live his life, well, I wouldn't be.

You have to admire a person that continues to live his life the way he wants to live it even as most of the world seems to be against him.

We don't know what is really going on with Mr. Sheen. We don't have our lives truly intermingled with his. What I do know is that we need to stop judging. We assume because of rumors, bad press, and third party stories that he is bad news. We believe what gossip rags, tabloids, and mass media tell us to believe. I'd like everyone to take a step back, take a deep breath, and remember that this man is human. Would you be treating your father, brother, uncle, cousin, or friend this way? Or would you choose to let them live their life and just support them as long as they are trying to help themselves.

Mr. Sheen could be doing coke and drinking. He could be completely sober. We don't know and frankly I'd like to believe the best in him as I do in most people in this world. The fact of the matter is we are only seeing the superficial surface of his life as a whole and recent events especially.

Open your minds. If you must think the worst of Mr. Sheen then don't say it out loud. It is good manners not to harass, demean, and call people names. For those of you that believe in a higher power let that power do the judging and condemnation.

Bless you Mr. Sheen. Live your life the way you are going to live it. Thank you for sharing aspects of yourself with us over the years. Thank you for forgiving those that judge you, eventually. Don't let negative people hold you down even if that person is yourself. Everyone has a will to change and improve anything that they want to.
