What a sad story about Governor James E. McGreevey (D) of New Jersey. Apparently, he was heading off a blackmail threat by coming out and resigning his post.
In his speech, he said, “Yet, at my most reflective, maybe even spiritual level, there were points in my life when I began to question what an acceptable reality really meant for me. Were there realities from which I was running? Which master was I trying to serve?
At a point in every person’s life, one has to look deeply into the mirror of one’s soul and decide one’s unique truth in the world, not as we may want to see it or hope to see it, but as it is.”
Regardless of your orientation, your heart has to go out to him and his family. It’s not hard to imagine what they must be going through.
