Fill in the dash.  For Rick Warren, it may be the death of his son.  My dash .. the deepest disappointment and loss in my life this far happened over these last 6 years.  The loss of my belief that good people prevail.  My sadness as I see the painful truth that if you choose right over wrong, really awful things keep happening.   

I used to believe the system of justice would prevail.   The supreme court of South Dakota will hear my case the spring or summer of 2016.  I am holding on to my thread of belief.

My three sons have had a front row seat.  They do not have the great privilege that I had to naively believe in the systems of our United States of America.  

They have watched our life go from a life of abundance to living in a donated RV in the winter months of South Dakota.  

They have seen our marriage stand firmly when all other markers in life crumbled. 

This blog is for them.
