Posted by Mike Foster: Let's get this straight: There is no INDIVIDUAL failure. Only COMMUNITY failure. If we fail, we fail together.

Sure we would prefer to place 100% of the blame on the person that screwed it all up. But we can't. We played our part too.

The greedy stock holders that drove the CEO to fudge the numbers. The insane demands put on the youth pastor that led to his unhealthy escapism. The good friend that started that risky relationship and we said absolutely nothing not wanting to offend.

We are ALL accountable for our actions. We don't get to conveniently throw the dude who screwed it all up under the bus and we walk away unscathed.

We contributed to creating the mess so we better stick around and help clean up.
