“Chase after truth like hell and you’ll free yourself, even though you never touch its coat-tails.”
– Clarence Darrow
Once upon a time…in a neighborhood or village not too far away, we were just a bunch of kids. And if our memory behaves itself, it’s fairly safe to say we can all remember a time when we believed…well…everything.
Girls believed that some day their prince would come. Boys believed that some day they would save the world. And you could find a fair amount of both boys and girls hunting their closets with a bat and sticking their heads under their beds to scan for monsters. Monsters they believed existed.
But most importantly, us kids, we believed people.
We believed that what our parents, preachers and teachers told us may as well have come from the mouth of God.
