So why the heck am I writing a blog about Al Capone? For the longest time growing up, I thought I was related to the world’s most famous gangster! Ok…not literally related to him. But I wanted to be him.
I never wanted to be the violent guy that Capone was…but I wanted to be powerful like him. I wanted people to work for me and I wanted to make lots of money. I loved how he came from nothing and how he made his own way. We could all learn lessons from the guy.
Ok…so he killed a few people. Experts say he was responsible for at least 33 murders. That includes the 7 that were killed in the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre in 1929. And yet, Capone was never convicted of murder. He was only imprisoned for tax evasion.
So in this blog, I want to talk about the qualities of this man that I admired in my younger years and the qualities that I despise now that I’m older. Is it odd? Certainly. But sometimes that makes for the best stories!
