He saw things in black and white.
He didn't dwell on the grey areas, but who amongst us can honestly say that we haven't lied for good reason? Who amongst us can say we live a truly good life? And that's not to say we shouldn't try.
We should all continually try to be the best we can be.
To escape the sins of our past.
To be accepting of our little foibles and of others.
We can't run away from who we are.
We must turn and face the truth head on.
Sometimes in life, it's better just to get on with things.
