QUOTE
"I believe our greater responsibility, in a crucial time like this, is to seek and know the truth, for ourselves as well as for others, because in the language of the Gospel, only the truth will set us free. The good thing about truth is that no superpower here on earth can bomb the truth or shoot it down."
