I think as creative writers who seek to capture the audience’s heart and mind, we have a bigger responsibility than just entertainment. I believe that entertainment is a vehicle to influence people toward a better life and purpose. If a story can do that, can make a better person, one viewer at a time, then indeed one is right to say that the pen is mightier than the sword. I am ever so humbled at the wonderful response and love the series has got”
