““History is always written by the winners. When two cultures clash, the loser is obliterated, and the winner writes the history books-books which glorify their own cause and disparage the conquered foe. As Napoleon once said, ‘What is history, but a fable agreed upon?”
No sooner was my sister swept to her death by a rogue wave, then the contest of ‘The Winners’ commenced. Dan Brown is ‘The Winner’ of the modern day Grail Quest – for the Truth! In my last post I admonish a man who is already cashing in – along the way – before we have arrived at the truth.
Dan Brown did not arrive at the truth, however, he has hindered the truth from arriving, because he is The Winner!
Thanks to folks in my daughter’s life, Heather will forever see her father as ‘The Loser’. When she was still a child of seventeen she had the great chance to champion ‘The Loser’ the underdog, the Man from La Mancha, and love him no matter how deluded he appear. What remains pure, is my quest for the truth, I not receiving one dime for my 25 year belief, that ‘The Truth’ does exist, and, if we persevere, IT will be found.
Dan Brown’s quest, is at an end. My quest is all around us, and in us, and, it has set me free! For there is no price I will take to give up my search: not even the loss of my daughter and grandson, is worth it.
Goodbye………………my last temptation!
