You know what everyone makes mistakes. Let this man go on to live his life and earn a living dor his family. Bitterness, jealousy and hatred are not attractive qualities.
I'm sure you have made at least one mistake in your life.
God forgives, you should too.
It's amazing how wonderful life can be when you let go of all that resentment.
God bless this man.

Where's the bitterness? He's just stating the facts. Rohr was fired in Joplin. He was fired in League City. He sued League City. This all happened.
