Time to go

My words falter as I ponder recent revelations of events at Penn State University.

The abuse of children and the failure to intervene appalls me.

No excuse. No defense.

Joe needs to go.

Anyone else who knew and failed to speak or act needs to go with him.

I believe that. I affirm that. Yet even as I type the words, I tremble. When have I failed to do what morality – what decency – what God required? I know I have. I think we all have. I acknowledge that. It will probably keep me awake tonight. It tempers my anger. It leads from smug self-righteousness.

But it is no excuse. no defense.

Joe needs to go.

Anyone who knew and failed to speak needs to go with him.

See you along the Trail.
