Aletheia, the Greek goddess of Veritas, truthfulness, is the spirit of sincerity, disclosure, being unconcealed. Aletheia is the daughter of Zeus and Hera, in her earliest mythology, and crafted by Prometheus, and called Veritas, in Aesop’s Fables. The philosophy surrounding the words aletheia and verities are interesting and as vital to consider now, as they were 3000 plus years ago.
Amanda Gorman is the living American icon LaHue chose to symbolize the Greek goddess of truthfulness, Veritas. Andrea LaHue sees Gorman as the hope, the much needed truth teller, revealer. Gorman is young, new to our collective unconscious, yet LaHue believes we recognize her veritas through her poetry, poise and timeless wisdom. Gorman’s poem, The Hill We Climb, was necessary for this moment and our history moving forward. Truth is a virtue, a philosophy, a way of living in society and in your own body. Amanda Gorman has the ability to craft words into the spirit of truth.
