When Bad Things Happen

I received some disheartening news today.

Someone I knew has been found guilty of having an inappropriate sexual relationship with one of their high school students.

It’s possible this person is suffering from mental illness, but does that excuse any part of their behaviour?

Mature adults know better. Even if they have feelings for someone, they know not to pursue it. They don’t act on those feelings.

But this person took action.

Those of us that know them are in shock.

I’m wondering if there were signs there that I should have seen.

I’m also wondering if anyone ever really knows anyone else.
