You have to say sorry. Thank goodness we are seeing the other side of what happens when things go wrong as well. When our leading lights stuff it up. From Mel Gibson, to Kramer to back home in Australia people are making mistakes.
- Watch the Glenn Milne video here
- Then Kramer on David Letterman
Then unless we have forgotten just recently Mel Gibson’s meltdown and his need for a huge public apology. I am not sure if Glenn Milne has yet reached the level of humility displayed by Mel. Really self justification as this article sounds like suggests that the lesson has not really be learned properly yet. None of us needs to flog ourselves for the rest of our life for a mistake but all of us need to go beyond dealing with the surface issues.
Glen blaming mixing alcohol with medication may be partly the cause of his actions. But really what we saw was the action of a very angry man. None of that anger is properly faced it is simply justified. Sure he may have been upset by the way that he has been treated but how many careers and lives have been ruined because of inaccurate reporting by the Australian media.
What is the way forward in such a situation? Forgiveness. We all have to let it go and get on with life. I felt sorry for Glenn Milne. His antics on the stage were not acts of greatness. But they did make him vulnerable and where that vulnerability goes will be the measure of his future greatness.
The same is true for any Hollywood star or even a mere mortal such as myself.
