Every two weeks Bloggers unite for a day to write about a communal topic. This week LetsBlogOff asks the question what is the difference between truth and fact?
It amazes me that my brother and I grew up in the same household. Our stories are so utterly different about the same events. For a long time I thought there was something wrong with my memory because it seemed like every time I told a story to one of my nephews about those childhood days my brother corrected me. As I have gotten older I realize we have different perceptions of the same event. He mind is a logical one and mine is based more on emotion. There is also an 8 year difference in age. Neither is right or wrong. Ok sometimes I am wrong but I am the younger one.
Truth, to me, is ever evolving as I continue learn facts. My truth tomorrow will be different than today as long as I continue to learn.
Sadly it seems facts are harder to come by these days. In this 30 second sound bite news age and rush to be live at all times we seem to leave the facts behind. People are busy, they don’t take the time to try and sort through the sensationalism and therefore a lot of the facts that are “out there” may not be the truth.
To borrow a few lines from a couple of favorite TV shows “The Truth is Out There” you just have to be willing to ask for “Just the facts Ma’am”.
