I started to write a long winded post about the reason why I left my last job. TMI.

Suffice it to say the reason that I left my job died yesterday.

Were you working at a church?

There's that dragon ev, I've been carrying that one around inside of me since May 2009. I couldn't let go of that dragon, until today.

I went to a church school.. a couple of years after graduating, and guy in my year told me that one of the teachers had sexually abused him, without going into detail.. a short time later my acquaintance took his life.. I never reported the teacher, for lack of evidence.. I dunno, maybe I should still report him anyway..

Ev, if the church's past record is anything to go by, they would have moved the accused somewhere else and nothing would have happened to him. I am sorry to hear about your friend though. The 'transparency' of the church equates with silence.

Please forgive the edits above. I don't want to leave too much on the net. Thanks.

I checked, and the teacher is working there after many years.

Regarding your edits, no problem. These kind of issues that some of us have been bringing up recently are pretty heavy actually, for a travel forum!

But I guess it's also normal after people have been communicating with each other for long time, that they start discussing more in-depth personal topics..
