High Road

Often when people are at a crossroads in life they ponder if they should take the high road or the low road. They frequently choose the low road as it is often easier with less problems plus they expect that even though it is probably wrong, they will not get caught or be able to talk their way out of any situation.For example, in a recent mystery movie a couple was about to lose their home.  The husband was an artist but no one was buying his paintings.  The wife worked everyday.  She was helping her friend’s daughter with a garage sale.  When they went into her mother’s attic the wife saw a very valuable painting.  She mentioned it casually to her husband.  He immediately suggested that she steal it.  She decided to take the high road and declined.  Magically, that evening the woman’s daughter who was working in the attic was struck with a pipe and the valuable painting was stolen.  No one had a clue but the wife began to worry.  She looked all over the husband’s studio and found it.  He suddenly arrived home and said he was selling the painting and would disappear.  She begged him not to but then she realized he had killed her friend and then he shot her.  She survived and he went to jail. It just goes to show you that even if you are having difficulties it is always better to take the high road as the low road never works out.  In the Good Gus series making the right choices and following the high road was always part of every story.
