Don't Believe Everything You See

Life is changing around us, that much we know. But, do we really know just how much it is changing or has changed? One must be very aware to research the threads that bring true information to light. Even more so as we can no longer count on a picture being a thousand words. Sometimes they are worth many more, as they create an illusion around us.

When I was a kid growing up, I had a friend that used to say a common adage, "You can believe nothing you hear, half of what you read and everything you see."

Modern technology is progressing so quickly it is important to realize that "photographic evidence" can no longer be trusted as such.
