Cyclist Lance Armstrong Stripped Of Tour De France Titles, Banned From Cycling

            Lance Armstrong has been a role model and an inspiration to many Americans. Following the news of his lifetime banishment from cycling for the use of banned substances, many people are heartbroken and left with the feeling of betrayal. While I believe that it was wrong for him to use banned substances to gain an edge during these races, I feel as though people need to look past the athlete and see how much good he has done. The Livestrong foundation that he stepped down from is still helping the victims of cancer. According to the article, donors are asking for their money back and I feel that this is very unethical because with or without Armstrong this is still a great cause.
