Question 2

Why is it I wonder that many people consider the truth to be offensive? There are gentle ways and not so gentle ways to tell the truth, this I know but in the end if we are not willing to tell and hear the truth what does it say about us? That we prefer lies? Are not lies the currency of tyrants?


I’m committing myself to asking questions that may be uncomfortable in order to learn the truth and then to the defense of the truth since it seems to me that when lies abound from the highest places in the world to the lowest places in the world it is high time that people stood and said this is the truth and I will not be moved from telling it even at the cost of my life.

Hi there!

I'm sorry I've been gone for so long...lots happening that's taking me away from the computer...just dropped in to tell you I've got a blog award for you at my place!

THIS IS A LOADED QUESTION...and one I've thought about a lot of late...and right now I can't answer that...I'll have to come back.

Hugs

Hello Mister Wordwright. Seems to me you're pussyfooting around and not asking the questions you're really itching to ask. Be that as it may, the only people who can change anything aren't interested.
