Tom Jones, Ant McPartlin, Meghan Markle and Ainsley Maitland, to cite just a few recent media stories, are regarded differently by the public, than certain of their family members. Mahatma Ghandi admitted that while espousing Satyagraha, he was nevertheless responsible for some acts of domestic violence. Mother Teresa, while receiving her Nobel Peace Prize, said 'Love begins at home'. Truth is a strange entity, as there can be many competing, even contradictory truths about the same person, each holding a fragment of insight, yet never able to usurp the whole. We are all a kaleidoscope of moments lived and choices made. Ultimately what is of value, is whether our evolving lives create an uplifting pattern and whether our emergent selves, from all we have learnt, bring love, life and promise to the many.
"You brave, courageous and wonderful man. To stand up for the truth in the face of suppression and oppression is truly an act of a pure heart."
