I have a duty to speak the truth

22 January 2013

I have a duty to speak the truth as I see it and share not just my triumphs, not just the things that felt good, but the pain, the intense, often unmitigated pain. It is important to share how I know survival is survival and not just a walk through the rain.

Audre Lorde

  1. Sometimes the truth is best left unsaid. But the pain will still be there, either way.

  2. Audre, I agree. The duty (and the mission) of the writer is to speak the truth, not the truth as the writer might wish it to be, but the clear and real truth.
