The Truth

Today I have 3 windows open to the world. I can hop around from one to the other and pursue the Truth as others see it. After looking at the diverse slants on several issues, I conclude that Truth is not a summation of factual information, Truth is the interpretation of factual information. Facts of anything become the building blocks upon which the Truth is built. That the Truth of something depends on the filters used in viewing it. As I peruse the various takes on Truth, I am constantly reminded of a Tom Cruise movie where a Marine colonel on the witness stand loudly proclaims to the effect, "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!" And he is right. I can only handle my Truth.
