May I take a moment to brag? It is something that I rarely have the opportunity to do.

For the last year I have been writing a monthly editorial for our local newspaper. (Circulation 150,000) Yesterday I was invited to write a weekly editorial column.

It may not seem like much to some people, but to me it is an affirmation. Because of my insecurities I have felt so often like my opinion doesnít count.

Well guess what!!!

Maybe I canít make anybody listen, but at least I get to have my say.

Letís be honest here. Is anyone surprised to learn that I am publicly opinionated? \:D

Aden

Aden it is amazing to realize the worth you have is it not. Kind of flies in the face of what we feel about ourselves. Good for you.

Congratulations, Aden, hip, hip...

Would you share one of your editorials with us? Something that really grabbed you. You know, the one that got your blood going.
Of course, your writing here has always been an indication that you are a writer.

Congratulations, again, and good luck on the weekly submission.

David

I knew it! Your talent and brilliant mind are totally obvious from your posts. I think you're insanely gifted and sensitive. BRAVO!!! Don't ever stop believing in yourself. I want to read your column now. You should be submitting to national publications, for sure. I wish you continued success and a brilliant career.
