Know this–if you know me you know this: I’m not one to go on and on about stuff, especially personal stuff; maybe I do as the occasional bit, but I usually make my peace with circumstances. I tend to pragmatically compartmentalize. So the fact that I’m still bothered by a thing 34 years after the fact might be a clue to something important about my relationship with justice. Justice and fairness–if you know me you know this–opens my fight zone. But sometimes wrong things happen and there is no repair. And I can’t make peace with wrong things. Especially when it’s glossed over with revisionist history and idyllic perspective. So as long as I can keep injustices vaguely unresolved, so be it. Most of history will have an asterisk.
