perception of truth

Prompt: Witness Perspectives

The prompt this week explores the subject of memory, eg, how differently my siblings remember incidents that we all witnessed in our family. Or how difficult it is to collate the different perceptions of witness to a crime or an accident.

How can we fully believe anyone’s story when we know what has colored his or her perception in the first place?

Will our own story ever be told? By whom? To what use?

Why telling the truth to the best of our ability is important, even knowing it is not The Truth.
