Why I write this column

August 16, 2014
By MARGARET VALONE , Observer Today

Recently I thought seriously about quitting writing. Of course, before I could give it up, I had to analyze why I write. I started way back when I thought I wanted to teach. Why did I want to be a teacher? Well, a teacher can change lives. A good teacher enriches lives. Knowledge is powerful! Teaching can be a tremendous contribution to the teacher and if she is a good teacher, she will touch many lives. Teaching is a service. It's giving to others. It's changing lives by giving to others and you don't give to others without some of it rubbing off on you. All kinds of service are rewarding.
