PAMELA JO BOWMAN – MESA ARIZONA – It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place. — Henry Louis Mencken
These last few months have been extremely difficult in regards to work and film and politics and lawyers and such. As my business partner has gone through such despair and disappointment by actions of her peers and “friends,” I have been inspired by her resilience to stand up for what is right. She is only one person, but she is determined to speak the truth and let the chips fall where they may.
Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely. —British historian, Lord Acton
It has caused many distractions in our creative pursuits. We have been working on screenplays, new series ideas and editing. Always editing. But, lately, much time must be spent researching. Perhaps it will be a book one day or a screenplay. Now, it’s just documentation. It is sadly human that those who have positions of authority tend to use that authority to benefit themselves. (Shall we talk politics and oil?) It seems that when money and power are involved, many people are unable to handle authority and remain loyal to ethical standards or even established policies.
I am a person of great faith so I am confident that as the truth is revealed, justice will prevail and those who are wrong will be dealt with appropriately. Those who have been wronged will be acknowledged, exonerated and compensated.
Just a few more weeks and the truth will set us all free. Free to get back to work on the things we really want to be doing … writing, making films, teaching, creating.
