Writing

Molly can’t recall when the writing started. Only that writing saved her sanity numerous times before age 15. In 1986, after seeing Reds, by Warren Beatty, she wrote her first political letter requesting chemical companies re-evaluate paint ingredients to save the environment. Writing corporate letters led to op-ed pieces about the death penalty, suicide and racism. Op-ed letters led to guest editorials about juvenile justice and public transportation.  Essays led to journal contributions about disenfranchised youth in juvenile justice. Journals led to national columns and chapters in books about Reparations for the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade. 

 

For Molly, writing is action.
