Giving Thanks for Writers

Sadly, no one sent names of combat correspondents they wished to honor. But we know they are out there. Those men and women who serve their country while recording the nature of war for posterity.

I’m thankful for all writers. For those who write only for themselves, to free their pain or express their joy. I’m thankful for those who write one book for twenty years, and for those who shower their readers with multiple books each year. I’m thankful for the writer who needs more encouragement, and the one who is confident. For those who write before work, after work, or on the way to work. I’m thankful for every person who loves words and employs them to entertain and educate the readers of the world.

Happy Thanksgiving, here in the United States. And happy writing to everyone else.
