National Writing Dayby Shirumisha Kwayu on 06/27/18
Normally I start my day by peeking social media platforms especially WhatsApp and Twitter. While doing so today I came across the trend #nationalwritingday. Therefore, I designated to honour the day by writing a short entry to my blog. The decision was out of guilty for operating inactive blog, when some (particularly) in my home country do not have the freedom to run a blog freely due to the new law The Electronic and Postal Communication Regulations. Thus, we should not take writing for granted especially when considering the power it has on society. Writing can change the way society thinks, it can also change the power dynamics in the society. Hence, writing is threat to those with power and interests to safeguard. Let’s continue to write!!
