Five days after Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee, a pastor, resigned amidst a sex scandal, he broke his silence on Twitter this weekend with meditations on forgiveness and overcoming struggles.
Gone is his profile image: A mustachioed chief in a pressed uniform. It’s replaced with a photo of him smiling and sporting sunglasses and an orange-and-blue Tigers hat and jersey.
Quoting Buddha, Godbee tweeted about his desire to move on and leave the past behind him.
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else,” Godbee wrote. “You are the one who gets burned.”
Dozens of friends and supporters wished him well.
