Lighting the World



by Susan Reichert, Editor-in-Chief


It is so amazing; we are all so incredibly powerful. Writers are, you know! With the stroke of their pen, we can write words that will soothe the beast of most and stir the hearts of lambs.

Writers can paint pictures with words that allow the blind to see and turn around, and write scathing words of do’s and don’ts to their congressional representative, newspapers and businesses.

A writer can lift up the most downtrodden lost soul and then create a wonderful world for a child to play and talk with the animals.


Perhaps as writers, we should remind ourselves that we have this tremendous power to make things better, or worse, in our world. The question we need to ask is which will we choose?

May we be writers who choose not to hide their words, but rather let them be a light to the world.
