The reader may wonder about the url for this blog: Veritas Noctis. It is Latin and roughly translates as The Truth of Night. What is the truth of night, one might ask? Why…it is the herald of a radical new dawn. Because it is always darkest before the dawn, or so the saying goes. I developed this catchphrase for an underground group of freedom fighters, called the Dawnbringers, for a fictional setting I created for roleplaying (and maybe a future novel or three). The radical new dawn will not come of its own accord, however. It requires a voice for liberty to speak up and spread the dream. It requires many voices. Edmund Burke once said, “Silence is golden but when it threatens your freedom it’s yellow.” And so I add my voice to the others already defending and promoting liberty in the hope that I will be able to make a contribution to changing our world for the better.
