The Bitter Truth

Truth is no respecter of persons, and has no color, age, gender, or agenda. Truth may be ugly, naked, plain, or bitter, but it is still the truth. I may not recognize it, but Truth is truth. I may not believe it, but Truth is still truth. “Truth does not depend on the unsettled and changing opinions of men. It was truth before it was believed. It will remain truth, whether it is believed or not” (Carlyle B. Haynes). Truth cannot be silenced. Truth cannot be banished. “If truth is buried, it sprouts, if it is thrown into the vast ocean, it floats” (Igbo maxim). “We can do nothing against the truth but for the truth” (2 Corinthians 13:8). Better to choke on bitter truth than to savor sweet lies.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
