Give Peace a Chance

peace in our nation

Peace among our nation . . .is it possible?

As writers, we hold a power.  The power of the spoken word.  You have the power to transmit the reader to a world which may or may  not exist.   Within the genre of historical fiction, as a writer you have the ability to recreate historical experiences and events through a new lens.   Now that is power.

By virtue of that power, you as a writer can craft works which bring out learning lessons, challenging journeys, heroic feats, and humbling demises.   One can learn from controversy.   Educated debate is what fuels the souls of the gifted.   Those with political klout can fuel huge paradigm shifts of the masses.  Just take a look at Oprah Winfrey.  Small town abused girl come multi-million megastar.   What bliss that her intentions are genuine.  Bring messages which can change the way we look at life.

Yes, as the writer you hold the power of the pen.  The written word far outlasts what is spoken.   It is printed.  Copied.  Archived and saved for generations to come.

As we face a controversial decision in our world – facing the atrocities in Syria, we are a nation polarized.  Do we, as a free nation, champion the injustice of chemical warfare against women and children?  Or. . . do we follow suit with the cautious hesitance to enter a dangerous war – another winless battle against evil.   Do we risk losing our sons and daughters?   The resounding answer is NO!

Our Congress must listen.  Hear the voice of the people. Click here to make your voice heard!  In the words of John Lennon, “Give PEACE a chance.”
