My older son, Karl, is leaving home. It could be this coming Sunday but, if not, definitely sometime during next week.
Karl has been a wonderful son and friend. Leaving Watchtower was made so much easier because of him - and his decision to exit undoubtedly prompted my wife, Claire, to take a look at the damning evidence herself! Most of you know our story by now, but I unashamedly post the link again for any new ones: http://www.jehovahs-witness.com/9/47295/1.ashx
It's going to be an emotional time. Claire just 'phone me with the news. But, hey, I'm not really sad. Why? Because:
HE'S GOING TO UNIVERSITY!!!!!!!!!
We're overjoyed because he'll be doing something HE wants to do. He's out of the Borg mindset and is growing up into a fine young man. He's studyimg Musical Production, so one day you might see him setting up the sound equipment for some major star or recording their songs in the sound studio. I can dream!
We're driving down to Brighton (where he'll be studying and where there's a wonderful music scene - Karl is also drummer in a band and is learning keyboards). His girlfreind is joining him!
Well, just thought I'd share. Kids grow up sooooo fast - but the main thing is Karl is his own man. He's FREE!!
