Morality – Suzy Fave-Hamilton

25 Dec

Recently many would have heard on TV of the Olympic runner Suzy Fave-Hamilton’s demise and association with an escort service. Although not an escort user I think I understand the need for the service. Many will frown on this acknowledgement but I also believe many more will agree even if it’s in silence. Society is a fickle thing and certainly its code of conduct is not written in stone. I believe we judge without knowing all of the facts and certainly too much pre-judgment exist at the mere mention of certain words.
I am not saying that what Suzy Fave-Hamilton did is right or wrong but I acknowledge that we all do things that at the time seems right, and perhaps for her they were right, for the time. Why do we only accept pain and suffering as a true measure of one’s self worth. If she has been suffering through a painful marriage or relationship no one would condone her for seeking an outlet or help of some kind. We do not know that indeed her life was in turmoil. She indicated on twitter that she was having problems and how of us knowing all of the facts would say well that’s not a problem? How many would say seek help? Not all help comes from the couch, I also believe that many of them cause can cause as much if not more harm. Some psychiatry is only a measure of acceptable societal beliefs. Abuse can be more than a visible physical abuse. That is an easy and measurable thing, but it can be an invisible one as well, such as psychological abuse. How many suffer through that in silence. I do not know any more than what she stipulated on the media and perhaps sadly I do not care to know. Her behavior has no bearing on my day to day life other than what this media ambulance chaser has forced upon me. Stuck in an airport you are at the mercy of few choices when it comes to television. However it does provoke thought.
I also recognize how easy things and life can get out of hand. One minute you are having an idle conversation with someone, the next you find yourself debating more intimate encounters. This is no different. Life has a way of starting small and growing out of control. We all would like to think that we can handle everything but how many would make the same choices given the same or similar circumstances.
How many pondered a similar question sitting in the movie theatre back in 1993 watching Indecent Proposal starring Woody Harrelson, Demi Moore and Robert Redford. I would wager more than one woman of the time would have, if not out loud then in thought indeed given the money problems, a payout of one million dollars for one night and throw in Robert Redford to boot a resounding YES.
Would the woman in the audience then accept the proposal with less vehemence because the situation was not real to them? Is it not real because the dollar amount is inconceivable as a one night payment to someone living paycheck to paycheck? How many would have done it for free simply because Robert Redford was the prize. None of us can say how they would react given specific circumstances. Life is about choices and those choices are given to us ever day. How we choose to action those choices writes our life book for when we present ourselves at the pearly gates. I am sure no matter how pious we may think ourselves none of us will arrive with a clean book. What we think is the correct choice today may prove to be the wrong choice, when more facts are made relevant on the Day of Judgment, just because we failed to see what was in front of us today or what the purpose of the test was. I believe LIFE is a test. The problem is we forget what the game is and we don’t really know all of the rules. read additional comments in my article Olympic Runner Suzy Fave-Hamilton
