The desire to write a view has prompted these words. Writing is necessary for so many good reasons, and bad ones too. We write because we want to express something; it could be intended for public or private readings. 
The need to write is a virtuous deed- yet most individuals throughout the world are not hip to it for various reasons. That is why our past is distorted and lacking. Writers are important to history because they represent society, and are thus reflections of cultures respectively- in a specified period of time. 
Writing positive things about any thought is healthy. It promotes more thinking and analysis as one continues to write on; hence it is positive toward the growth of humankind. 
Writing within the confines of democracy, carries its innate responsibilities. Itís unacceptable and unlawful to violate anotherís right through the composition of words, for example.  
We write to inform, educate, entertain, communicate, pleasure and other motivations. We write because we are writers, and it is always good to encourage others to partake in the pleasure of the written words. 
We are cognizant of the fact that despite all the technological advances today, billions of people around the world are illiterate. This is undermining the full potential of a universe of writers, and it is an injustice to the human race. 
There is a planet of unexplored writing talents. This place is earth where man reigns, but he is unable to educate all of the inhabitants because of self inflicted poverty and division. If only he could get it right, our global village would be a place of maximum potentials where writers, and their talents could come to full eternal bloom. 
Itís sounds idealistic, and perhaps unrealistic. But man has yet to give it a try; it is here that my beef is. Let us write-to-write more, and let us write to invite, and inspire new writers. Let us write to teach, and to lessen the gap between the literate and illiterate. Let us write to be leaders, so that our neighborhoods could follow. Let us write for peace, so that the world would know where we stand. Let us write for freedom- allowing billions more to join us. When we write, we cannot be wrong.

Mangling English Here Is
I really, really wish you had consciously defined your core argument before writing this essay, as I feel there is a fine, perceptive point lurking amongst all these scattered, mangled tenses, syntaxes and half-finished thoughts. What is the overall thrust of your argument? Are you advocating that all people become writers, or participate in writing in some form? Are you pointing out the need for literacy programs? Or are you insinuating that present-day writers should avoid looking down on their audience, and so treat all readers as capable of appreciating the written word? I must say I take issue with the statement "Writing positive things about any thought is healthy....hence it is positive to the growth of humankind." In this light, one could say Mein Kampf, with it's positve description of fascism, is helpful to the growth of mankind; a statement which, upon even casual observation, can be ascertained as false. The phrase "it is here that my beef is" is such a mangling of the English language that it almost takes on a glow of belligerant genius. The final paragraph is easily the best portion of this work, with the unfortunate exception of the tag line "When we write we cannot be wrong" as it not only fails a simple logic test (you can refer back to Mein Kampf example here) but also dilutes what little message you seem to be attempting to send, that writers should aim toward more positive goals. It is important to remember that presenting an argument involves defining a point, building it up through detailed examples and then reiterating your point with a final take-away line which is both memorable and succinct -- it would be a shame for your readers to move away from this article with the surmizing thought that the first person in line for any functional literacy class should be yourself.
