Every journalist's work begins with picking up a pen and writing down his or her thoughts. Thus, a pen is not only an important working tool of every journalist, but also one of the first witnesses of journalistic work. An easily overlooked and easily forgotten but primarily indispensable working tool without which the work of a journalist would probably not be possible. The pencil is the linchpin of our spot. It is the silent hero who gets a voice in our story.
