Think for a moment of Joe Paterno's status among our nation if he would have spoken out and called Sandusky on the carpet when he had the original chance to do so.
Not only would he have been regarded as one of the all-time greatest coaches in any sport...he would've been elevated to an almost saintly status, revered as one of our nation's greatest leaders & his bronze statue just might have been taken down and replaced in pure 24 karat Gold.
Paterno would have literally stood among the ranks of Martin Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, and any other person that chose to do the right thing in the face of adversity.
-It's a Legacy tarnished beyond belief.
What a Lesson for all of us:
It's not how you start but how you finish & always bear in mind that we have a higher moral standard to adhere to.
