To Tell the Truth
It is easy enough to speak honestly, if we are willing to do it.
But often there is a price to pay, so we avoid the cost.
Sometimes skirting the truth helps prevent harm to someone, in which case it may not be a bad thing.
And then, there is the eternal question, “What is the truth?”
Who can be blamed for not speaking the truth when he doesn’t know it?
Perhaps the primary task is to first identify the truth, and then speak it.
