Role 4
Writing is important, because writing lets us get a job in this present day, it lets us write rules and laws for safety, write signs, and many other things that have to do with writing. If we didn't have it, we wouldn't be able to talk to each other from far away distant, let us know what we should do and not to do, and warn us about dangers without speaking.
