“Truth is powerful and it prevails.”

Sojourner Truth

Sojourner Truth was right.  That is what I’m going to practice as a journalist and blogger.  Actually, I have put it in place and a change has occurred.

Explore Chicago has information on different communities in Chicago.  They actually  provided incorrect information about Englewood.  I wrote a story on my Shorty: Your Chicago South Side Resource blog sharing the inconsistencies, and sent it to them.  I received a message from Explore Chicago stating the information will be adjusted.  And it was.  They actually removed the entire paragraph.  I’m sure my sarcastic question had something to do with the change, too.

Either way, all I did was practiced what Madam Truth said and change was made. There really is power in the pen.
