Kudos to Mark Sanford for his Integrity!

Bravo Mark Sanford! Your integrity is incredible. 

As a previous resident of South Carolina, I am proud, not of your actions, but of your honesty!

Real men, good men stand up and admit errors. Humans make errors and then, when they are people of faith, they ask for forgiveness. That is exactly what you did in your press conference.

Followers of the Christian faith profess forgiveness is given, a gift from Jesus, I hope that each and every South Carolinian will remember the tenets of their faith and remember that ” there but for the grace of God…go I”.

And thank you for the information that allowed us to realize that this was not a “just” sexual fling. You honored women as human beings in your confession.

Families throughout our nation face this type of crisis every day and  many of us in the family therapy profession appreciate the example of responsibility and honesty you have provided to other men.

In every life there are deceptions. The measure of a person is in their ability to stop the lies, “come clean”, then ask for and accept help.

Thank you for your courage.

I wish you well and will hold hope in my heart for you, your boys and your wife.
