I'm a man who is in his sixties.
As I reflect on my school days, it would have been nice to be told the following:
"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."
How many of us went through life, thinking up all kinds of lies and stories, to cover up the truth about various matters?
I would dare to say that many of us would be in a different situation than we are today. Whether we are having health problems, financial problems, family difficulties, telling the truth does eliminates a lot of difficulty and it prevents stress and worry.
Do yourself a favor and write that quote down- "If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."
Pass it out to ten of your friends or others and have them pass it out to more of their friends. Pretty soon, it will spread like wildfire and people might start changing their viewpoint about the truth.
Who knows? It might sink through to our leaders and it will bring shame to those who have been causing much heartache to the many senior people out here, who have the truth locked up in our heads. Good luck.
