In our society, thinking is becoming lost art

I enjoyed David Sherman’s column “Without news, we have no freedom.”

Freedom is a process where we all have our duty to play.

“What is truth?” — Pontius Pilate.

If truth is the first casualty of war, it’s understandable that journalists often fall with the soldiers.

“If you don’t read the paper, you are uninformed. If you read the paper, you are misinformed.” — Mark Twain.

The editor has the burden to filter the data through an unbiased lens.

“When everybody thinks alike, some aren’t thinking.” — Gen. George Patton.

It’s up to the educational system to teach students how to think versus what to think. Thinking is becoming a lost art in society. Thinking involves asking the right questions.

“Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” That old saying reminds us that work is not just a four-letter word. It is our duty.

“Freedom isn’t free.”
