I made some mistakes when I was 20 and a student at BYU.
I had help getting through the crushing guilt and other consequences.
The same Honor Code that was in effect then is the same one that’s making national headlines right now.
Apart from suspension or probation, there’s a girlfriend. And, supposedly, a kid on the way. I can’t find a single legitimate source to back that up.
It really complicates things. And I know I wouldn’t be able to handle that very well as a 19-year old, on top of media coverage. And the whole world blogging about it.
Judgment, compassion. It all comes down to a choice, really. My heart hurts on so many levels.
I defer to one of my favorite bloggers, Dooce. I agree with what she says about this.
Mistakes, consequences, redemption. He’ll rise above this.
Chin up, Brandon.
