Don McClure: The Potters Field Case
Don offered to come on the blog himself… he’s done it before in controversial situations.
I thought it would be better if I just relayed the heart of that conversation to all of you.
Don McClure is as broken over the situation at Potters Field as anyone here.
He is searching his own soul for the reasons why he didn’t see the abuse and act earlier.
He was responsible for many kids going to the program, indeed, he sent three of his own grandchildren.
He’s tried to contact as many kids as he can to apologize and offer any help he can give.
He spoke to me, (someone who has been a decades long adversary), with real humility and great compassion for the situation.
He owns his part in the debacle.
Don and I haven’t agree on much, but we agree on one important point.
All our efforts should be aimed at helping these young people.
The Potters Field refugees have found a place of contact on this blog and there is healing happening for many.
Don and I laid down our weapons to talk as brothers for their sake.
This blog will do the same for a couple of weeks as these young people find each other here and tell their stories.
These young people love Don and most of them come from CC backgrounds.
There will be no shots taken at McClure, none of the standard anti-Calvary fare.
We can pick all that up when we’ve connected as many kids as we can and listened to all their stories.
This…is not a suggestion.
Thank you for listening.
