Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?
Everyone who testifies in court must answer “yes” to this question. Does that mean everyone who testifies in court tells the truth?
But I think most people do tell the truth … as they know it.
As you listen to the witnesses testify against you, keep in mind that the truth is a lot like beauty. It is in the eye of the beholder.
Two people can experience the same event and when it is over they can be asked to tell the truth about what happened. And the two people can have two almost diametrically opposed versions of what happened.
