Writing is an essential part of human interaction and existence; it is an important tool for sustaining the heritage and soul of any particular group of people. Writing means different things to different people; it is appreciated at various levels and interpreted in various ways; to some it is an art, to some it is a gift, while to others it is a skill that can be learnt. But the bottom line still dwells on the impact it yields and wields; the way lives are changed and touched by the letters of inspired writers with a certain level of mastery.
There is no better way to tell a story so that it speaks even louder to a greater audience than through writing. There is no better way to convey the truth so that it pierces even the most biased of hearts than by writing it; little wonder the Holy Book is a written document. There is no better way to preserve the bodies of knowledge or the spirit of intelligence than by engraving them on the pages of books. The constitution and every other similar legal structure that bind any organization or body or system are also preserved in writing.
Many great men can testify that their choices and paths were shaped by the depths of even greater men, whose wisdom they left in the pages of books and sheets of scrolls, so that just like Daniel in the scriptures, whoever wills may discover by books and seek what they sought rather than seek to imitate them.
We can’t doubt the efficiency of the power of writing; its effects are nearly eternal. Those who have the ability to wield this tool should consider it a privilege, as writing isn’t only relevant, but also an interlocking grid between fragments of time.
