Perception vs. Reality

Perception - the cold sore on my lip is big enough to be seen from space.
Reality - most people don't notice it unless I point it out to them. But it still hurts like someone put a cigarette out on my lip.

Perception - My family is the only one struggling to get by.
Reality - Millions of families across the nation are in the same or worse shape than we are.

Perception - Prop 8 passed because the will of the people decreed same-sex marriage threatens "traditional" marriage.
Reality - The Yes on 8 campaign used just about every dirty trick in the book to get it passed, including robocalls featuring Barack Obama's quote about not believing in same-sex marriage but excluding his very next line that he did not support Prop 8. Those robocalls went to every single black voter in California.
