I think everyone is different

Thats the way you dealt with it, that is great.

But we can't judge others by our own perspective.

And it is not about sweeping it under the carpet as if it did not happen.

I feel it's more about recognising the past with it's mistakes and going on to the future.

I certainly didn't mean to imply he doesn't see the pasts mistakes, but he certainly doesn't see the need to visit boards, and weep and wail over the past.

I guess in some ways he is quite different to a lot of men in the family, as he protected us and shielded us from quite a bit of stuff that was happening, and if I hadn't been so "crazy" he probably would have got us out sooner. He wasn't afraid of leadership and only "submitted" when it was about trying to keep us together.

I think thats what pushed us out, when he realised he couldn't protect his kids in the Family, that they had taken away that right.

Anyway, I'm not going to try and justify him here, I'm very proud and thankful for him, I would still be in if not for him.
