You Shall Know the Truth
The truth Never Dies If You Kill It You Can’t Bury It alone —Sarah AJ.
I have chosen to write or provide you these selected few quotes about truth for our reflection, considering what has been going on in the country politically, economically, scientifically, and otherwise. This is in consideration of the fallacies, confusions, rationalizations, lies, and manipulations of the truth. I consider the title of this post to be a call for action. Thou shall know the truth.
What I have selected to present to you in this post should be read and taken reflectively.
I hope you find them valuable. Please enjoy!
