Supervisor Adam Hill has publicly admitted that he deals with depression and issues of rage and anger that he sometimes can’t control. He agonizes that this has affected his ability to interface with other people while doing his job.
Adam Hill is a good person with a problem. His was a contrite admission that had to be very difficult to make publicly. I can empathize with Adam because I, too, had to deal with similar issues many years ago and sought professional help that clearly made a difference in my life.
Adam knows he has a problem and truly wants to fix it. Instead of simply condemning Adam’s sometimes angry public behavior, we should offer our support and understanding, knowing that he will find the help he needs to eliminate those “unwelcome visits” that he described in his Viewpoint. America has always been a country of second chances. Let Adam have his.
