Unnecessary Sorrow: A Journalist Investigates the Life and Death of His Older Brother Ordained, Discarded, Slain by Police

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

An Oklahoma farm boy grows up to become a priest, a priest for life--or so Paul Hight believes and the Catholic Church teaches. Yet when mental illness descends on Hight in middle-age, instead of seeking care for him as it would a priest with cancer or heart disease, the Church purges him from its priestly ranks. While his family keeps Hight from ever becoming homeless, that safety net is not enough to keep him safe in the end. In 2000, Hight is shot and killed in an unfortunate encounter with police that is seen too often with the mentally ill on the streets of America. A decade later, still haunted by the death of his older brother, former newspaper editor Joe Hight turns his journalistic skills on finding out the truth of his brother's exit from the priesthood and the lessons to be found in his brother's death with a hope that such unnecessary sorrow might never happen again.
