In this letter from our “From the Heart” collection, we offer a brief meditation on the simple question “Why?” and how exploring our curiosity about the reasons behind our world can, in turn enrich our lives. This is a good letter to send as the intro to a newsletter, especially as kids are returning to school from the Summer or Holiday breaks.
- This can be an email message if you like
- Also works as a long-ish status update on Facebook or your blog.
From the letter:
“Who, what, when, where, why, and how. These are the six fundamental questions that journalists answer when they’re investigating a story. Five of the six are informational— they communicate facts which are more or less on the surface of things. The one that I think matters above all? Why.”
