These past few months have been difficult for the whistleblower. It is hard to love and lose so much in a very short time frame. It makes you realize how important and unimportant things are in life. They say anything that doesn't kill you will make you stronger. Wow! When unexpected events occur it gives you a clearer perspective on life, what's important, and what's not.
Which means for us that time will take care of the little stuff. Though for me and Leon Bradley the little stuff seems bigger than most little stuff. Eventually, it will all be over.
Personal tragedies take precedence over guessing what, when, how, where, and why things are or are not happening to those who wreaked havoc on our county. It is possible that nothing will ever happen to those who destroyed so many lives to include their own. Self-destruction through crossing the line is not uncommon.
At some point, we get hit hard with the reality that shakes us to the core. In other cases, people don't care or are not smart enough to care. They are too busy bragging that they won. Yes! but what did you win through lying, cheating, taking, being untrustworthy, and gaining riches from others? Nothing. It will be like quicksilver that slides from your hands. No matter what you have in your private hiding hole or storage unit it will be worthless. It does not compensate for all that one loses.
You have lost the respect of the community, the sheriff's office, the politicians in our community, to include all of those which followed the stories on the Decatur Daily and the media. Sure you won. But what did you win?
Congratulations!! You won... There is still a lot of thin ice out there.
There is still a long way to go.
