GETTING THIS OFF MY CHEST

Needing to get this off my chest...

If you watched this season of America's Got Talent, then you definitely know who Michael Ketterer is.  The pediatric mental health nurse who adopted 5 children with his wife and sang his heart out week after week.  The final episode, we saw video messages from families who thanked him for changing their children's lives by helping them because of the amazing man he is.  I cried every time he took the stage because I thought...the world needs more people like Michael Ketterer.  I know I'm not alone.

Over the weekend, a story broke that this same man was arrested a day after the finals for domestic violence.  He and his wife had gotten into a fight at the hotel in Hollywood and he was arrested.  They both said it was a misunderstanding, and she didn't want to press charges.  Here's a link to the full story.  I saw the story over the weekend, and normally stories like this make me shake my head and I think...that's awful.  But this one really hurt me.  I thought...no...this can't possibly be the same guy.  Not Michael Ketterer.  Not the guy we fell in love with every single week.  The guy with all the kids he adopted, who helps children at the hospital.  Nope.  In fact...I couldn't even post the story to our Z93 Facebook.  That's how sad I was.  Weird, huh?  Not sure why it got to me like that, but it did!

So, this morning we talked about it on the air.  And somewhere in my sharing of this story I said, "We don't know what happened.  Ya know, fame does crazy things to people...maybe he cracked under the pressure."  I said that because I was hoping this was a one time situation that caused him to go temporarily insane and make a terrible decision to possibly abuse his wife.  TWO THINGS.  1- That does not make it ok.  But I was so wrapped up in the fact that I couldn't believe this was the same guy that I loved so much, that I didn't say that out loud.  Mistake on my part.  I should have said that.  2- We don't know what happened in that hotel room.  The only people that know are Michael and his wife. 

So, because of my lack of follow through in my statement, it was brought to my attention by a listener that I was making excuses for domestic violence abusers.  WHOA!!!  I certainly don't want people to think that, so I have to get it off my chest.  I did not mean that fame was an excuse to abuse his wife.  OF COURSE IT'S NOT OK!  IT'S NEVER OK!  I was trying to think of a possible scenario as to why it could have happened because it seemed so completely out of character for this guy.  But she was right.  There is no excuse.  In no way would I ever say it's ok to abuse someone and I'm so sorry if it did not come across that way on the radio.  That's why I had to set it straight. 

I pray that the two of them can figure this out because the fact of the matter is...they have 6 children to care for.  That is what matters most.

17 YEARS AGO TODAY...

Where were you 17 years ago when our nation was attacked?  We're sure you know exactly where you were and exactly what you were doing.  We will never forget that day, we will never forget all of the lives that were lost, and we will never forget the feeling of complete helplessness.  This morning we had someone ask us for the tribute that Z93's Jen O put together on that tragic day of Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven."  This woman is a teacher, and she has played this tribute for her middle school class every year since 9/11/01.  She went to reach for her CD today and for some reason, she couldn't find it.  So, we sent it to her and it reminded us yet again...we will never forget.
