We believe what we are told. Starting from the journalist reporting event to hearing about the story from a friend or family. It is told and spread in a specific way that is not always accurate.

'Two perspectives' is intended to demonstrate that to every story there is more than one account of the event. While some may see unity others may see anarchy.
