There is a familiar phrase... "Things are not always what they seem." As I grew older I began to notice that it should have read, "Things are not always what they have been taught to be." Throughout our lives we are often faced with small philosophical adjustments. We humbly change beliefs that we once so confidently held into newer, more accurate versions. But sometimes, like a violent burst of thunder, we are suddenly forced to rethink some of the very foundational beliefs we inherited from those we love and trust the most.
