Writers can unite people or divide them.
Let’s use our words well to inspire a kinder, fairer, more beautiful world. Let’s be part of the clean-up team.
“Language imparts identity, meaning, and perspective to our human community. Writers are either polluters or part of the clean-up team. Just as the language of power and greed has the potential to destroy us the language of reason and empathy has the power to save us. Writers can inspire a kinder, fairer, more beautiful world, or incite selfishness, stereotyping, and violence. Writers can unite people or divide them.”
