The Freedom to Write Should Be Celebrated Every Day

The Freedom to Write Should Be Celebrated Every Day

Monday was the 4th of July … a huge day in America. Many starts in early—this year, last Friday was mostly likely the kickstart. Flags were out. Families and friends gathered at picnics, barbecues, movies, and gatherings. All a good thing.

Cherish the fact that our Founding Fathers lit the author’s writing path with … freedom. Freedom for words and the creation of books. True independence.

  • It’s America’s birthday. Meaning a celebration with family and friends.
  • What happened within the walls of what became known as Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was life-changing. The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were both debated and adopted. 
  • Within the Constitution lies multiple Amendments. The First Amendment is essential and critical to what we authors do: Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press.

Amendment 1

Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Cherish the fact that our Founding Fathers lit our writing paths with … freedom. Freedom for our words and our books.

For ALL Authors and Writers globally, we should be joining in a universal cheer and celebration of the power of our words. Their meaning … their impact … their ability to make a difference … to create change … to solve problems … to relieve pain … to entertain. That’s a tremendous amount of power. It’s a  very cool thing to think about this 4th of July week—wouldn’t you agree?

Think of the symbolic sparkler of the 4th. It’s in your hand representing your words, your passion, and your vision. Hold it high for the freedom to write that you should be celebrating every day.

I hope you spent time with your family and your friends. And honor yourself for what you do for so many. Our Founding Fathers would be proud.
