Be it known that the tapestry of life is formed by the lives of people. Each person is like a thread and it is difficult for the thread to see how it affects the whole. In this blindness, institutions are sometimes accepted that are not necessarily healthy. Once accepted the institutions begin to mar the design the tapestry. Sometimes in these moments a voice will arise that will help those who were blind to see. This voice in the wilderness will rush upon the consciousness of people like a mighty wave changing peoples perspectives demanding them to reevaluate their actions. This was so during the American Revolution when Tomas Pane wrote Common Sense. This literary worked helped lead Americans to the overthrow British rule and to found the United States. Later in American history Harriet Beacher Stowe wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin which demanded that black slaves be freed. In recent history Rachel Carson shocked her reader into action when she was able to blend her talent as a writer with her scientific expertise into the literary work Silent Spring.
