It’s a tough time in the world and I’ve been pondering what, if anything, to say, wondering if the world needed yet another voice yapping on about justice and mercy. And what would I say, anyway…that I’m for it? Seems obvious, doesn’t it?
What I do believe is that each of us is given a function in this world, each one unique and necessary. Mine, for now, is writing, and I do believe that the pen is mightier than the sword and that it is the responsibility of writers to speak truth to power. Well, it’s the responsibility of all of us, isn’t it? Writers simply do it on the page.
