Hillary Clinton announced recently that she will write another memoir, this one focusing on her tenure as US Secretary of State.

Clinton is currently wrapping up her time in the post, with her last day scheduled for Feb. 1.

“I don’t know what I’ll say in it yet,” Clinton said during a news conference, when she stated that she was planning on penning another memoir.

She released her first book in 1996 with “It Takes A Village,” which focused on what it takes to raise children today and the role that society should play. Her 2003 memoir, “Living History,” began with her childhood and discussed her time as First Lady in the White House. She also authored a 1998 children’s book titled “Dear Socks, Dear Buddy,” which detailed how kids could write letters to White House pets.

Clinton’s husband and former president Bill Clinton has also written several titles, including his newest, “Back to Work,” which was published in 2011 and focused on the US economy.

During the same news conference, Clinton said that she is “not inclined” to launch a presidential campaign for 2016. 

“I’m not thinking about anything like that right now,” she said. “I am looking forward to finishing up my tenure as secretary of state and then catching up on about 20 years of sleep deprivation.”

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”
