Let me throw a little Socrates y'all's way (yeah, y'all's
. It's a word down here, okay?)
One of Socrates' big questions was "What is truth?" I love that question, especially when discussing it with my students - especially after reading the chapter "How to Tell a True War Story" from Tim O'Brien's fabulous novel The Things They Carried. My kids get so frustrated with that chapter, because the story changes each time Tim tells it, then he says by the end that it never happened but that it is a true story.
So, what is truth?
