“Let’s make a lightning rod!” Ethan was always thinking to teach Eric––something he’d been doing his whole life. It was different now that they were home from Washington. He graduated in the first law school class at Georgetown University, while Eric studied at Gallaudet Deaf University. Pa wanted him to help establish law and order in Kansas, whether as a lawman, lawyer, or judge, so he went to college. They’d talked at length about it. He had a passion for justice as strong as Pa’s.
