Sorry Pennsylvania kids. The candy is not going to be near as good this year at the Sandusky house.

My bad idea

All of my life I have felt the need to say what I feel. When I do, I mean what I say. Evidently, the problem is that I am not eloquent enough to keep from hurting feelings. When I was a kid and would get into trouble by my parents, they would want to know why I did such and such and so I would tell them. Bad idea. In school, my teachers would have a problem with me and I would tell them what I thought of them. Bad idea. In my work life, same with the boss. Bad idea. The lesson I learned through all of this is just to keep my mouth shut. And I have to admit that has worked pretty well. It's not right, but I have gotten by. Well, life hasn't changed now that I am in a leadership position. I thought that I was speaking the truth in love. I thought I was doing what needed to be done. I even thought I was being helpful. Evidently, it's still a bad idea. “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Deitrich Bonhoeffer
