  • Bobby D. Harrell is a name most of you wouldn’t recognize. He was pretty popular back in 96’ when he took the state of Kentucky all the way to the Supreme Court and won. For whatever reason the state likes to keep that kind of stuff confidential; perhaps, it’s because he also published a small town newspaper, titled “Tell it like it is”.

    The interesting thing about his paper was the information he published, to him, it was the absolute truth. Regardless of the conspiracy topics, the political controversy, and the faith based reasoning. He fought in what he believed to be right; even, when it wasn’t the easiest thing to do.

    Growing up, I remember thinking that he was the bravest soul that I ever met, as he held his head high and always spoke with certainty. His spirit of love, joy and passion shined behind his gentle nature, and his, always inquisitive and often misunderstood theories, facts and confusion; brought humility to everyone who took the time to know him.

    The older I get, I am often reminded of how much I take after my grandfather. Grateful, to have learned that whatever life throws at you, stand tall and be okay with everybody not liking your stories.
