When they’re at their best, journalists work diligently to hone their talent to produce the stories that peak our interests, time-and-time again. These individuals are able to awaken emotions and feelings that reside deep inside us, and to calm sentiments that are contrary to our sense of peace. As wordsmiths, they use words to paint the mental pictures that convey their stories. They guide us, teach us, and enlighten us. Much of our worldview is supplied from the pen of journalists.
