I would love to be an author but I don't know everything there is to know about writing. Maybe you should try to think things through before you say something that could possibly offend someone.
And maybe I do like impress upon youngens the importance of such things. And if you were to decide to become an author, wouldnt you learn everything from the basics to the hardest before you started writing or indeed before you decided that this is something you could do? Anyways, writing is less involved than handling a hot headed race horse.
If I did offend the original poster, that wasnt my intention but not everything in life comes wrapped up in pretty paper with a bow that makes us smile. Sometimes things come in a brown, boring paper bag that isnt nearly as endearing however, the same thing is inside
