Today I want to write about something that has been on my mind for close to a decade…. something that has been on my mind not because I wanted it to be on my mind but because people have brought it up repeatedly in personal attacks against me on the Internet and yes indeed people have even on one occasion posted my home address and other personal information.
Nearly a decade ago I made a terrible choice although, surely you will not find many people who make as grave of a mistake as the one I did and likely for good reason that being that its something you will have difficulty addressing for the rest of your life.
The good thing is that some people do own up to those mistakes they make in their adulthood but sadly some people cannot resist the odd urge to attack people based on their past and use the past as a weapon in an attempt to assassinate ones character. Anyone who has known me for the last decade knows that I am not that person I was a decade ago.
Today I am someone who tries to give back to every community I am involved in and I hope that those who read this who did not know about my past will choose to judge me based on my contributions of the present and who I am today.
I would like two thank two close friends for their encouragement to make this post and for knowing who I am today.
