There never was a good war or a bad peace. ~Ben Franklin
In the Tulsa Peace Fellowship email post just sent through regarding the Memorial Service for Janet Hutto, someone included brief comments from a private email I had written right after finding out about the tragic loss of Janet to our lives. In my comments there was more said than these few lines, and I feel very sorry that they were used without my permission in a public forum, but also that they were lifted from a longer message.
Never in my wiildest thinking would I ever have criticized anything about how the family responded or dealt with this very distressing event. In my comments, I was as shocked as anyone, but there was never any negative intent or feeling that something should have been done differently, or any presumption on my part at all. But I fear that my comments sound that way in this post. Please please forgive anything you might have read into those few words, as they were innocently written and never meant for public posting. I love Janet and Mike, some of the very sweetest people in the world, and it was my honor to work with Janet for good. Thank you.
