Writers observe and relate to others the real and imaginary events of the world. By doing so, they feed the imaginations of their readers and therefore help to shape the communities within which their readers live. All things good and bad begin with a thought.
Writers can also actively engage in the hard work of seeking and proposing solutions to various social and systemic problems. Today's posts are a collection of articles from this week's news. As you read, ask yourself, "Do I have something worthwhile to contribute to this discussion? Do I have another topic about which I'm passionate and would like to offer my perspective?" Then do what you do, write.
