Journal 4

out of the many, many great profiles in Holding On, Moreese Bickham's, Hinkel Schillings and Shade Pate's profiles are most memorable in my mind. To start off, our criminal justice system is not perfect, it is just as prone to corruption as any other job. This was most common in the '40s, '50s, and '60s. Moreese Bickham was attacked by police and killed two while defending himself. He wound up in prison with a life sentence... This is not what i think of when i think justice. Then, the two old men who were the fox hunters, my family has deep ties with the hunting and sporting community. There is nothing better in this world than listening to a baying hound that is hot on the heels of a fox or raccoon.
Moreese Bickham's profile has a deep theme of religion. In these desperate times, i see more and more people turning to Christ in search of comfort and answers than i have in the past.
Hinkel and Shade both have a deep love for their dogs. we see this every day when we walk out the door and see someone walking or playing with their dogs. To many people, dogs are not just a pet, they're a companion.
In both of these writings, all the men have a passion that they hold onto dearly and as soon as that passion is out of their life, they might as well die. we all need to find these passions in our life to create a better home environment and in turn improve our relations with other people in our society.


  1. I agree about being passionate about things. The criminal justice system has never been perfect, and I think it will never be perfect. Its too bad some innocent people have to suffer for it.

  2. Passion about anything will mke a persons life better in almost every way. I wish there was more of that in the work place today, or I wish I could see it easier at least.
