I Love to Write Day is commemorated on November 15 of every year. It is a perfect Day to express ourselves on paper to write whatever we feel: a poem, an essay, a short story, a letter to the editor, novel or anything.
“Humans aren’t as good as we should be in our capacity to empathize with feelings and thoughts of others, be they humans or other animals on Earth. So maybe part of our formal education should be training in empathy. Imagine how different the world would be if, in fact, that were ‘reading, writing, arithmetic, empathy.” – Neil deGrasse Tyson
