WHAT IS THE COLOR OF THE TRUTH

2020-11-29       

     I was wondering just what color is the truth? I saw something posted on the front page of another site, and it started out with big red words.   The font would get one's attention that is for sure, but just because it got the attention, does the red color make the words there true?  There was a several paragraph declaration proclaiming their innocence  to something someone allegedly said to them.   When I read it a quote came to mind. " Methinks thou dost protest too much " - A Famous Quote by William Shakespeare.   It just seemed to me that this person was trying desperately to convince people they were telling the truth by screaming at them in red letters.  I would love to know the color of truth in other peoples minds. I always thought the expression was true blue not rue red lol.
    My thing is IF you are REALLY telling the truth those who know you best will know it, BUT IF YOU ARE NOT no amount of red ink or yelling will not turn a lie into the truth.  Something to think about when posting such things on a full page speech.
   I always thought red was the color of anger,but just because you are angry dies not mean that you are telling the truth.   It could mean you are angry because you got caught doing something you should not have been doing. lol
