Today I lost a hero.

This year, Sports Illustrated selected Lance Armstrong as their Sportsman of the Year. Lance, as everyone knows, recovered from brain cancer to win four Tour de Frances in a row. He is an inspiration to millions worldwide. And he was one of my personal heroes. The article informed me of something contrary to what I had always believed: Lance doesn’t believe God had anything to do with his recovery.

I’m not disappointed because I believe everyone should believe in God. I’m disappointed because I do believe that everyone who’s been given a miracle definitely should.
