Heads up, Writers!
It’s time to save the world! We need a Charles Dickens, to show us what the census numbers really look like walking; we need a Thomas Paine to tell us just what might really work; we need a Rachel Carson to bring us to our senses; we need a Martin Luther, to bring us back to God.
We’ve had plenty of minor players. Who’s going to write the story that brings us fully back to center?
People who are great in their various professions, skills, and callings think profoundly but narrowly.
Only writers think of all the connections and the what-ifs; and some of you must wrap your imaginations around all our ideas, events, and characters, and write the words that will save the world.
You know who you are. Heads up!
