Rescue Word of the Week #23 – 2013: Truth

The rescue word of the week is truth.

Please help save this word from the endangered-word list by adopting it and using it in your thoughts, your speech, your writing, and your deeds.

What does this word mean to you?

My two cents (but please share yours):

Every few decades, a handful of individuals will claim truth is relative. It’s not. A statement is either true, or it isn’t. There are no shades of gray, no in-betweens, no little white lies. Speaking the truth matters. Truth is the solid foundation on which we build our lives.


  1. Just as Diane Keaton said to Jack Nicholson in that movie where they were involved with each other: “There is no VERSION of the truth.”

  2. My first line in the “About Me” on my FB page is: ‘Truth is my quest.’
    My search for truth may defy political correctness or any political party and any established religion.

    • Congratulations, Julie, for making truth a priority. Cheers, Ashley

  3. I wish it were only a handful of people who claim truth is relative. Unfortunately, there are more of them than there are of us who consider truth to be constant and unbending. One result of this is all the judges who “interpret” the US Constitution to mean something other than what it says.

    • I suspect there are more people who value truth and freedom than we realize, David. Have hope. Cheers, Ashley

  4. I believe truth is truth. You can tip it to one side or the other, but when it is upright, it is truth.
