Sometimes people surprise us. Sometimes they outright shock us. Sometimes they turn out to not be at all who we thought they were. And sometimes the clues were right in front of our noses the entire time. Maybe we don’t want to see them for who they are, or maybe the truth seems impossible. Maybe we just want to think the best of those we think we know.
We often hear of “things” people do on the news, and can’t believe they could do such things. We wonder how they could sleep at night. We wonder if they just thought they wouldn’t get caught. We feel sorry for their families. We’re glad we don’t know them. What happens when it turns out to be someone you know?
