Words about past and present can and will be distorted daily using all kinds of formats. A general rule of thumb these days is to have the reader distinguish between what is real and what is not. Picture it as a roller coaster that continues to spiral down constantly in all directions with no stopping point. Or, may-be a better example would be a guessing game, you read and then guess between truth and fiction; between opinion and fact; between right and wrong. The majority have always been overwhelmed with the thirst of printed words proclaiming a refreshing taste. Yet the old abandoned well that we all think is full of refreshing water and satisfaction seems to always be dusty and dry. So, changing the appearance of the old well may help. Change the customs and traditions, create new bright ones to take their place. Erase history as we know it and paint over that rust and give the well the best makeover possible. Broadcast to everyone, Look, here is the true well that you seek. And people gather to read the words and marvel at the beauty and the stunning prospect. But the truth didn’t change. The hard work of personal efforts didn’t change the fact that the well is still dry.
Moral: Don’t ride the roller coaster with your beliefs, your traditions, or your morals. Don’t let useless words change you to a well that is dry and can never give refreshing water to the thirsty.
