The sofa sized sculpture was unveiled at a ceremony in Tikrit today. The artist said "It is not a political work", but the ode to the shoe hurler that accompanies the statue mentions "being able to tell the truth out loud."
Reading this article got me thinking about the things we say. Is this an example of telling "the" truth out loud, or our own interpretation of the truth? Sometimes we can be pretty quick to judge. Imagine if we all walked around and publicly shared our interpretation of the truth out loud. We would find ourselves like Jim Carrey in the movie "Liar, Liar."
Sure, we need to hear the truth and sometimes the truth hurts, but it's better received when shared in love and one-on-one. Sometimes, I think we just need to hold our tongues, and maybe our shoes, because it really does not add value.
Tell me, do you think we should always tell the truth?
