National Tell the Truth Day

“No matter what you believe it doesn’t change the facts.”

— Rev. Alvin Louis “Al” Kersha (1919 – 2001)

Episcopal clergy and jazz aficionado

Whew! This is the day dedicated to honesty and the rejection of manipulation and lying. It’s not always easy to be honest and open, but when we learn that every single day is like a clean, fresh sheet of paper, honesty with ourselves and others becomes easier. The truth may not always be comfortable, nor pleasant. So, perhaps a dose of self-forgiveness is also helpful today. Let’s not be too hard on ourselves. Let’s just continually work to do better… today and on each new day with which we are blessed.
