Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."

government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.

choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
