A fundamental principle of military leadership is that you lead by example. Servant leadership is based on the concept that you set the standard of ethical conduct that you expect others to follow.  Unfortunately, that concept has been turned on its head in Washington.  Too many of our elected leaders hold themselves to a different standard than the rest of the country.

As I type these words, the good people of Alabama are going to the polls to decide who will become their next United States Senator. By the time you read these words, you will know whether the folks from Huntsville to Mobile, from Tuscaloosa to Columbus, have picked a man whom a number of women have accused of truly vile behavior, or whether a Democrat was seen as the lesser of two evils in one of the darkest red states in the nation. We are in the midst of a sweeping social change in this country, where men in high places guilty of barbaric behaviors are getting at least some degree of comeuppance. The question before the nation now is whether those men, and the countless others who are not in high places, will finally have to confront their boorish/vile/criminal behaviors committed over the course of years, or more likely, decades. I should warn you, gentle reader, that at the end of this essay I won’t have any answers. I haven’t figured out what should or shouldn’t be done

Sexual misconduct, inappropriate behavior and even assault are, of course, not new experiences for women or men. Reports show that 1 in 6 boys and 1 in 4 girls are sexually abused by age 12, and it’s usually by someone they know well. These stats are incomplete and inaccurate as they represent the number of incidents that are actually reported. The concept of covering up these behaviors, both as the victim and perpetrator, are learned in our youth.
