There is news today that Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning has colon cancer.
Many if not all in our community blame Bruning for the laws that have destroyed the lives we were trying to rebuild. They cannot be blamed for their anger and their bitterness.
News that a beloved family member has cancer is a painful shock — likely it is just as painful as news that a beloved family member has been charged with a sex crime, or any crime.
In neither instance is glee or vengeance an appropriate response.
Jon Bruning, former offenders, and the people who love them need and deserve compassion, especially when tragedy strikes.
Nebraskans Unafraid and FACTS are sorry that Jon Bruning and his family must suffer all that cancer patients and their families must suffer. We pray for Jon Bruning’s recovery and that his family members will be comforted in their pain.
