The two most famous stories of betrayal deals with mean whose initials were J. C.  Nothing hurts more than the betrayal of a friend…in high school you may remember reading the story of Julius Caesar, if so, you remember the famous line “Et Tu Brute” which means “Even you, Brutus?”  A questioned asked by Julius Caesar as he was repeatedly stabbed not only by his enemies, but his good friend Brutus as well.    Many of you don’t have to imagine how Julius Caesar felt because you know exactly how it feels to be betrayed.  To have a friend stab you in your back, use what was confided as a weapon, sleep with your partner and to have your trust abused.
