October IS a good month.
The U.S. Senate spent a few minutes up to some good.
Earlier this month, they voted to approve a resolution that designates today as The National Day on Writing. (Why not Day OF Writing?)
Whereas, blah, blah, blah and etc.
Resolved, That the Senate--
(1) supports the designation of October 20, 2009, as the National Day on Writing;
(2) strongly affirms the purposes of the National Day on Writing and encourages participation in the National Gallery of Writing, which serves as an exemplary living archive of the centrality of writing in the lives of Americans; and
(3) encourages educational institutions, businesses, community and civic associations, and other organizations to promote awareness of the National Day on Writing and celebrate the writing of their members through individual submissions to the National Gallery of Writing.
Here's my bit for the cause:
I wrote a letter to a friend,
I hope it finds her well.
