Thank You — Gratitude-18 — Passionate Letter Writers

1180

Letters to the Editor may seem of no real importance at first mention, but when one stops to consider these efforts are born of the right of free speech, reevaluation may be in order.

Passionate men of letters, for whom I am forever thankful, helped form our United States of America.

+ The Articles of Confederation
+ The Declaration of Independence
+ The American Constitution
+ The Bill of Rights

Without the continuation of knowledge on, and support for, these documents of freedom, American freedom cannot stand.

These are also passionate reminders that freedom is not free. Freedom is a continuous work in progress, which we must be willing to protect. It must be nurtured throughout every generation of Americans to ensure its success.

Is your writing passionate? Can you get to the core of freedom through your pen?

Please share your thoughts on this post’s opinions with your own in the comments section!

(BONUS Trivia: Who said the National Park System “is one of the first great American inventions”?
ANSWER: QT Luong, who has photographed all 60 national parks over 25 years!)

Since I first touched a pencil to paper, I've been writing. Where that passion has taken me as I lived life is explored in my Primary blog, http://www.mywritinglifexposed.wordpress.com . I love animals, including race horses, about whom I have written much, and I've always had a dog in my life. Shouldn't animals have their say? In my Second Primary blog, http://www.horsesandanimalsaretalkin.wordpress.com , I give them a chance to speak. In the Composite blog http://www.nearthefinishline.wordpress.com , I explore my life's journey and observations. Other interests -- poetry, sports, photography, thankfulness, story ideas, self-publishing, story art, fiction, and more -- get their due in my other (17) blogs. I'm from a rural community in Ohio, lived nine years in Vermont, then returned to my native Henry County in 1980. I've worked for various local newspapers and attended classes in writing over the years before retiring to free-lancing in 2008. It was after my migration back to Ohio that I began BAT Publishing in earnest. It is strictly a self-publishing enterprise in that I publish my own works -- novels, novelettes, short stories with my Roughcraft Art -- in my own softcover, or loose-leaf notebook, designs. My photos and artwork are also incorporated in the books. Prior to this endeavor, I produced a periodic story booklet for young writers only entitled "Connections". Its success sparked my interest in self-publishing my own titles.
