Here are some of the things I have learned about truth:
You can deny it, suppress it, distort it, try to discredit it, try to shame or intimidate or silence the one who tells it.
You can hide it under a pile of lies and deceptions.
You can find associates who will help you smother it or heap dirt or ridicule on it.
You can shove it under a bushel basket and sit on it.
But the truth about truth is that it is always true. And it will shine through.
