An Obituary for Truth
Truth, one of mankind’s guiding lights for centuries, died in a vicious mob attack instigated by Comfort, Apathy, Dogma, Self-Interest, and Entertainment. She was a pillar of the community, with a glorious history of influence throughout most of our cultural development. She enjoyed nature, science, and spending time with anyone who sought her out. Her tireless efforts to help mankind become better resulted in many of our greatest achievements: the scientific method, logic, mathematics, and physics just for starters. Her guidance led to many great social and political moments: the first person on the moon; equal rights initiatives for women, racial and religious minorities, and the LGBTQUIA community; the Hubble telescope and how it expanded our view of the universe; medical advances too numerous to mention; the discovery of gravitational waves; and many, many more. It is hard to imagine what our world would look like had we lived without her influence. She was loved by many. Eventually, she will be missed by all.
She was preceded in death by her seven children: Justice, Equality, Love, Empathy, Compassion, Honesty, and Integrity. Many of her grandchildren passed on before her as well, including Fairness, Civility, Curiosity, Humility, Beauty, Freedom, and Selflessness. It is unknown if she has any family that have survived.
Services will be held at a location to be determined. Thus far, no religious or political institution has been found that can stand her presence, even in death. Check back to this page for updates.
