Make Truth The New Normal

WearWhistle

Any­one remem­ber the sto­ry about George Wash­ing­ton chop­ping down the cher­ry tree, then own­ing up to it when his dad­dy asked who the cul­prit was? “I can­not tell a lie,” lit­tle Georgie said. I don’t know about you but that sto­ry was cen­tral to my ear­li­est social stud­ies edu­ca­tion. Hon­esty the best pol­i­cy. Our heroes the truth-tellers. Nev­er mind it was polit­i­cal mythol­o­gy, not actu­al­ly true, part of the con­jur­ing up of false fronts for those in pow­er. I’m going to run with it.  My heroes are the truth-tellers. The brave ones who actu­al­ly do speak the truth. No mat­ter what, because it’s the right thing to do. In fact, I’m going to take it a step fur­ther. Let’s not admire those heroes. Let’s be those heroes. Let’s all grab a whis­tle.

I learn and am inspired by your comments!
