A “TRUE” Joe Paterno Would Disappointed

This Joe Paterno issue is going to have the #Leadership bloggers at fever pitch. That’s expected.

Because I rarely post on “leadership,” specifically, I wanted to include my commentary for the record. As a business owner, I want those that follow or may follow me in the future to know where my heart is.

1. I don’t care about Football (or any sport) when it comes to protecting humans – especially children.

2. My thoughts on being a TRUE leader.  

“Lead with your heart and the rest will follow, always, unending and unwavering. Allow your fears and doubts to keep you nimble and driven for the good of your followers – never to retract passion, judgement or reason for humanity. Tolerate error, but have faith that your tolerance will be tested, by God and by others not as worthy. If your leadership is proven, you can rest in peace.”

I’m sorry Joe Paterno and others have lost their jobs from this scandal. But in all honestly, a TRUE leader, as Jo-Pa was supposed to be, would have never let the issue get to this point.

Sorry I am so late to posting this but I came this link scanning for something and noticed you decided to become a sports writer as well. YOU DON”T KNOW SH#T ABOUT JOE PATERNO. Also, don’t try to respond to my comment. I used a fake email. Just respond here…
