Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Freddie Mac CFO Found Dead

David Kellermann, acting chief financial officer of Freddie Mac, was found dead in his Virginia home Wednesday morning in what police say was a suicide. Condolences to his family and friends over what is surely an inconsolable sorrow.

As the times change and challenges arise, the solutions which seem like an easy way out are not really so. Whatever Mr. Kellerman believed or knew about the darkness in his industry past and present, and the dark road ahead, suicide is a mortal sin and those of us who are believers pray for his soul.

It seems like a good time as well, to remind people that there are groups who help whistleblowers, and if indeed, as some suspect, Mr. Kellerman chose suicide over an ugly whistleblowing scenario, the tragedy is compounded if such a thing be possible. If you are a whistleblower suffering from the stress of what you are carrying, or are close to one who is suffering, check out the Government Accountability Project, or GAP, the nation's leading resource for government, corporate and international whistleblowers.

Again, our condolences to the family and friends of David Kellerman.
