A Tough Bird To Swallow
I love blogging, but one of the drawbacks of blogging is the fact that people have full access to what I am thinking. I started blogging because I was being credited for writing things on Lumberton Topix that were not written by me, so I created a blog to express my views and opinions.
Those of you that follow this blog know that I had made some disparaging remarks about Mayor Miriam Holder. I made those remarks out of a place of ignorance. I took the word of a liar and I let my battle get personal; which resulted in unfounded innuendo and allegations. For months, I avoided the mayor because I knew that I was dupped, and I had went too far with my allegations. So, in order to remain angry with the mayor, I refused to speak to her, answer her phone calls, or respond to her e-mails. But yesterday, this all came to an end. The mayor approached me in the board room, and explained to me everything that took place. In my heart, I already knew the truth, but I didn't want to admit my willingness to believe a lie. As the Mayor of the City of Lumberton, Miriam Holder deserves our support and repsect. I must admit that I was not supportive, and definately not respectful of her position as Superintending Power of this city. So, since I am bold enough to allow the public access to my writings, thoughts, and opinions, then I should embrace that same bold spirit and let Mayor Miriam Holder know that I apologize for my actions and my behavior.
