Writers are given a sacred trust to share the truths we are given. Do we decide what those truths are? Nope. And sometimes it gets very uncomfortable putting our sacred trust out there. Not everyone wants to hear the truth.
I’ll share one of my ultimate truths with you now: Words have power. They are neither good nor evil. Words are tools in the hand of the person who chooses to use them. Intent is everything. This is why writers must be careful about how they use their words. Are you sending out messages that inspire and encourage? Or are you spreading falsehoods and hatred?
Words are ideas. They have the power to change lives. Use them wisely.
In this special season, I want to share a quote (and modernize it a bit to fit our world today)
Peace on Earth. Good will toward ALL men, women, children, animals and most especially – our home, Earth.
From me and mine to you and yours,
Best Wishes for Peace, Hope and Joy
