There is nothing truer than truth. The lies of the lying liars cannot change this, but they can change us if we fail to nurture our love of truth.
The administration thinks it can make the truth by choosing those who are allowed to tell its version of it. But as Cormac McCarthy’s young protagonist says in All The Pretty Horses, “There aint but one truth…The truth is what happened. It aint what come out of somebody’s mouth.”
Honest people know this to be the case. So, let us remember it, and let us remember that truth is truer than our hopes and fears.
