A Billion Cheers At 40: Lets Celebrate Mummy Jessy

Ooh the depth of literary riches, how terrific they are! In less than 40 hours time, our sister- J. K. Rowling would roll into her 40th birthday anniversary (on the 31st July). While making no pretences of any private relationship with her, or knowledge of, how she intends to mark her arrival at the proverbial 'land of milk and honey'. I am using this article to invite all writers to celebrate this ambassador of our profession -the PEN FAMILY, by posting a copy or just say something to appreciate this God's gift in our midst.

Don't mistake me for a Pottermaniac, I am not one anyway, but I am a virtue-manic. I believe in virtue, as a gift deposit in man by God, to conquer our environment and circumstances. This is what this our sister has demonstrated in 8 years, and has complemented this by unspeakable humility and soberity. She arose from the trauma of being a victim of many personal misfortunes and arrived as a Victor in fortune. With her God-given gift, she has built a name and 'Castle-of-Respects' for writers worldwide in 8 years.

I am making this appeal so we can project a heroine figure for our profession. If we lack heroes and heroines, we would be threateed by woes. If we lack one whose testimony inspires us to achievement, then, we would be prone to expire. It is the 'Hellos' of Heroes that inspire society, with pride, to move forward, even with phenomenal speed.

Are you still searching for heroines? You have one already as your sister in this profession! Join me in sending 'Mummy Jessy' a billion tributes in advance of her 40th in less than 40 hours time. As you do this, receive, I pray thee, the stamina, speed and grace to rewrite the story of your own personal misfortunes too.
