Truth

What is truth? All words hold power. Words have the power to break down and tear apart a person wither it be emotionally, physically, or spiritually and those same words have the power to build a person or foundation. But the words themselves are not what give them the power that they hold it is us the people that give them the powers and meanings that they hold.

The Power of Truth

The Power of the Truth Novelist Tim O’Brian once said “A lie, sometimes, can be truer than the truth, which is why fiction gets written.” In his novel The Things They Carried, O’Brian argues that “story-truth is sometimes truer than happening-truth” (171).

However, a story, no matter what story, cannot be more true than an actual...
