I’ve recently been through the worst period of time in my life.  I’ve always hoped that I was capable of greatness and this is the type of moment that great people experience.  The greatest among us have overcome great set backs and obstacles along their path to greatness.  The lowest points are the split in the road that directs them onto the right path and builds that ever elusive character they all have in common.  I want to think I am capable of being that guy.  The one who uses tragedy to fuel their rise to the top and be that gleaming example of courage and overcoming to others.  I just don’t really know if I am that guy.  Is a choice?  Do you get to choose to be that guy?  Or is it that you were always that guy and that character was already deep within you and tragedy cuts away the walls we build around ourselves until that character shines through?

Having a background in psychology and helping people I know that getting everything out that has happened to you can help a person move on.  I won’t lie, I am struggling with the bitterness left over from what happened with the school district I worked for.  It is one thing to know that eventually God will hold them accountable for what they have done, but so hard to sit back and see them still prosper while my family and I have suffered.  They should have to be ashamed of their actions instead of getting to continue their reign of terror that they inflict on everyone around them.  I think what they have done in its entirety should also be made public since they went to great lengths to bully and intimidate me and my family through the process.  Once I gather my thoughts I will write down what happened and chronicle the depths of their illicit behavior.  One reason is because until I truly get my opinion out on what has happened and explain what forced me into my resignation I don’t know if I will ever really move on.  Secondly I do want people to know what transpired against me because these people should not be able to get away with their misdeeds without having to face the truth of what they have done.

They hide their lies and actions in the dark and fear the truth because once light is shown on their deeds people will see them for the selfish, power abusing, liars they are.  I know the words are harsh but that is my raw emotions and opinions after pouring my heart into a job and having it ripped away from me solely because I stood up against the administration and pointed out that “the Emperor/Empress had no clothes.”  They have taken my job, tried to ruin my reputation, and hurt my family in unimaginable ways.  There is nothing more they can do except be forced to face the truths of their actions and what their selfish misuse of power has done.  Do I expect them to feel guilty?  Of course not.  People who are capable of doing what these people did do not feel remorse for their actions.  They justify what they do.  As long as they get what they want, then anything they do is acceptable.  A friend of mine was concerned when I shared that I thought about putting down what has happened to me for others to read.  He worried the district and administrators would sue.  I have to admit that I laughed a little at that.  What will they get out of me?  I have no job, no home, no money, nothing.  They left me with nothing after their actions.  Plus pointing out that people have done unethical things and calling them out for being the types of human beings they are isn’t slanderous.  It is both a combination of my opinion of them and the facts based on their behaviors.  I find it funny that people who attack and destroy others have such thin skins.  If you are going to try and ruin someones life at least have thick enough skin to take the judgement and ridicule for being the bad person you are!  But I digress.  I figure the next few days I will chronicle the events that have happened so that the public can see just who is running the school district and see the truth behind the inaction of a school board whose purpose it is to hold the administration accountable for their actions.  This whole incident was a mixture of many failures.  First the original lie from Viola McLaughlin was an act of sheer jealousy about an outside incident with friends of mine.  Second was the selfish, political, kingdom building, and the hate for anyone to stand up for what is right when it goes against them that the administration displayed.  The final act was the complete and utter abdication of leadership perpetrated by the inaction of an unethical school board.

As this round of school board elections begins the public should see these so called “Christian men and women” not on how they claim to be but based on who they are as seen through their actions.  They pat themselves on the back for raises given to the teachers but aren’t made to face the culture of fear, retaliation, and uncertainty their rubber stamp of the administration’s actions has caused.  They aren’t called out on their lack of oversight and the accountability they are supposed to hold the administration to.  All parties involved should have to face the light of truth for this incident.  Some may accuse me of being bitter and jaded over the incident and I will admit that I am pissed at what happened to me and that I was unable to see justice done.  But I will also say that just because it paints them in a negative light doesn’t mean it isn’t true.  People who have done evil deeds for evil selfish reasons can try to blame others for how they look in the retelling of the situation, but they only have themselves to blame.  And unfortunately there is a lot of ugly to go around with these people based on the darkness in their souls and the blood on their hands from this incident and others that they have done in the past to others as well.

All that to say in the next few days I will put out there exactly the truth that needs to be known.  So am I that guy who rises above?  I don’t know, but I do know that I have spent my life doing everything I can to stand up for the faith and ideals instilled in my by my parents and I believe exposing this incident and standing up for what happened is the right thing to do.  So even if I am not that guy, I am not going to change who I am because these people have tried to ruin me.  If evil people hate me for the man I am and the standing up for the things I have spoken out for, then I am on the right track.  They wouldn’t hate and try to destroy unless my example and character was in stark contrast to the selfish evils they spread daily.
