Strawberry Gallagher reported on Kean University's celebration of the National Day on Writing on October 20, 2010, in The Cougar's Byte today. As she concluded,
"Writing has different forms, different formats and different purposes but has one common function, it brings people together. When we read quotations, novels, poetry and other forms of literature, society can relate and not feel as they are alone in their struggles of love, heart break, disappointment and despair. It has played several different roles in people's lives as well as throughout history. Dr. Best could not have put it better 'Everyone has something to say' and it needs to be said. The National Day of Writing not only embodies the purpose of writing but it gives people the opportunity to express how they feel liberally."
