One of the things that keeps getting to me about Hamilton is how much his writing is what gave him a better life. Writing drew attention him and led to people sponsoring him to go to university in New York. Writing is what gave him a job. Writing is what he did help to start the USA being an independent country.
Can one child, one teacher, one book and one pen really change the world?
Certainly there are differences that can be made.
And I’m realising more and more that I’m always feeling the need to read and write.
But does it make any difference when I pick up my pen (or laptop) to write?
I really am not sure.
What do you think?
Do our pens change the world?
