I've hit a road block!


Edmond Burke is quoted as saying "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

I have decided to go down a path that is seemingly a dead end. Today I talked with our District Attorney and found out there is yet another possibility, but it will take effort. And more importantly time.

Time & effort, two things people, in general, find difficult to give up. What if I fail? What if I don't get the results I'm looking for? What if I do all that work and it is still a dead end? What if... What if....

The underlying problem? FEAR. Fear of failure. Today I have choice. Will I allow "evil" to triumph because I am afraid? Or, in Edmond Burke's terms, am I going to sit back and do nothing?

So what are you going to do? Is this in reference to an earlie post about a letter to the editor? Or is this something else all together? I want to know!

Yes, this is in reference to the earlier post regarding the letter to the editor.
