The whole quote is:
“Though the Mills of God Grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small,
Though With Patience He stands waiting, With Exactness Grinds He All.”
Friedrich Von Lougou
That’s one of my favorite quotes from The Retribution, and it’s been pasted on my computer since my first blue and gray Kaypro, purchased in 1985.
Yes, Heaven’s grinding mills are as vast as they are slow, but sooner or later every full circle comes about. Not soon enough, we mortal humans cry, but they do come around.
Comes now news that the Department of Justice is going to free up 39 million dollars for Overseas Service members who were shafted and ruined by Bank of America. It’s illegal to file civil actions against our military fighting on foreign battlefields, but that knowledge didn’t slow down Bank of America one whit.
No, when the Mortgage Crash and the Housing Bubble hit, Bank of America just played taps on the spines of our fighting men and women, while they forclosed on service members and kicked their families into the streets. Capt. Matt Clauer was a famous case that comes to mind, but there were many, many others.
Yeah, the Big Bank is going to refund some money, a little here, a little there. But by what means are they going to repair the many divorces, the shattered families and repair the misery of families who lost love and trust.
Bank of America, your fund is too low, your response is too weak, and you’re only doing this because you’d otherwise be facing contempt of court charges and a huge public black eye.
I’m glad you pointed out the greater losses in this nightmare, Ward. Monetary settlements can NEVER compensate for the emotional drain, destroyed relationships, and innocent children that suffer the most from broken homes and missed opportunities all because of some wicked greedy powerhouse that holds the strings to control the lives of its customers (victims)!
