A striking letter

I stumble upon the most amazing pieces of writing thanks to the Internet. I remember the days before all this was at our fingertips, and shudder to think of all that I’d miss. And yes, even with all the drivel on the web, there is enough good to be found to make it worth sifting through all the crap.

I mean, really, unless you were writing a thesis on slavery, would you ever find this amazing letter? (From one of my favorite blogs, Letters of Note.)

PLEASE click and read it. It’s a fantastic – and captivating – example of someone successfully using writing to (not so) subtly make a point. Or several points. And drive them home.

The moral: writing doesn’t have to end up in a novel to be successful. I think that’s a pretty damn successful piece or work, don’t you?
