Make Amends - Honoring #1000Speak

What is the Truth? Does it really exist?

Truth is an interesting word that is thrown out very frequently without regard to what is really the truth. Is truth real, is anything really true. Something that we think is real instead just being a figment of our imagination with truth never really existing. Why is the truth so important? How many evil deeds have been committed in the name of truth, the only truth. We all live in our own reality where there are many truths not just one. The truth is not black or white but all the shades in between....more
