Writing to Change the World

September 6th, 2008

There are lots of good reasons to write. But the most important reason now, if you ask me, is to save the things you love. So much that’s rare and uniquely beautiful in the natural world is endangered. If we want to change that, we’ll have to change ourselves – and  tell others.

Writing is powerful. No doubt about it. It can touch peoples’ hearts and move them into action; it can open their eyes and  their minds. The act of writing even changes the writer, from the inside out.

Your words are powerful – more than ever before, because there are so many new ways of getting your message out.  It’s asking a lot to change the world, but maybe if we all work together we can do it – word by word.
