Day 36, February 9

"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes an act of rebellion." George Orwell.

Perhaps at no other time in our nation's history have we so great a need of men and women who have the courage to tell the truth.

Are you as disheartened as I am of the media distorting and flat out lying about political candidates? Stories are related out of context; innuendo is reported as truth. It is discouraging enough when the candidates throw insults at each other. Now we must endure the bias of those who are charged with speaking truth as well.

There are many honorable persons in the press; however, there are also those who abuse their power for their own ends.

This I know for sure: we are all charged with speaking the truth, for, one day, we will be held accountable for every word we have uttered.

  1. As an introverted person, I must confess that I believe we will be held accountable for the words we did not utter, and knew we should have. I'm trying to do better about this.
