In the age of 24-hour news for ratings and rampant sharing of misleading or purely fabricated social media posts, the seeking of truth is more important than ever. It is our duty to ourselves and to society to constantly search for truth, to challenge those who knowingly spread untruths or unsubstantiatable claims, and to be willing to admit when our own truths are shown to be wrong. When I entered medical school, one of the first things we were told was, You will learn a lot in the next four years, and 50% of it will be wrong. Only by continually examining evidence and drawing rational conclusions can we find truth. As a physician, my credibility depends upon my telling my patients the truth. As I enter the political arena, the importance of telling the truth to those I hope to represent remains a top priority. If you tell the truth, you do not have to remember anything. (attributed to Mark Twain, but I cannot prove those were actually his words).
