Whilst the writer is trying to scribble down the right word to put on his new writing, he suddenly remembers an old folklore story about a boy who cries wolf. For those who had never heard the story before, the writer will tell you briefly about it.

It tells a story about the Boy, who entertained himself by calling out "Wolf!". Nearby villagers who came to his rescue found that the alarms were false and that they had wasted their time. When the boy was actually confronted by a wolf, the villagers did not believe his cries for help and the wolf tore him into pieces with its sharp claws and later ate him.

The writer also remembers one famous quote relating to the bad habit of lying by former American President, Abraham Lincoln who once said, “No man has a good enough memory to make a successful liar.

Sometimes, a lie can become a fruitful truth if it was been said repeatedly and, the general public had fully accept it as it is. It is more worrisome indeed if our societies have failed to tell the difference between a common truth and lies.

On the other hand, if we accept the fact that all truth is common lies, we surely are heading to disaster.

All of the malicious and slanderous stories that have been said on the certain quarters of people in our society, is unfortunately have managed to establish its existence, thus it has been accepted as the truth, which will hard for the accuser to deny it.

This shows how rumours can damage a credibility of a person. It is a painful fact indeed that words are mightier than sword, but if it had been used with great caution, a single and correct word can improve us to make the world become a better place to stay.

What this writer is trying to say is that we need to recheck on the stories that have been brought to us or and it is important for us to check the validity of it.

The writer is not trying to preach the masses but he is just sharing some point of view on which stories that are filled with malicious and slanderous accusation and senseless rumours should not be taken into consideration as truth by the public.

Dear Bacalah readers (Jose, I doubt people are reading it), before we engaged in any rumours we need to ask ourselves, does it worth of our ears to dangle in this sort of nonsense (until has been proven the validity of that story)?
