Marty’s Lies


Do you believe that there are occasions when lying to your parents is OK?


Phyllis replied:

This was the question I posed, among others.  This gray area between right and wrong.  Whichever way Marty chose, there were consequences.  He had already tried once to convince his parents that the dog was being abused, that he wanted to protect it, and his father insisted it be returned to its legal owner. Once again, dog was abused.  The second time it ran away and  came to Marty, he did what his heart felt was right.  But that too had consequences, and this time the dog was seriously injured.  It is not a question for me to answer.  It is for the reader to wrestle with.  What would you do?
