Beautiful Thought, Unfortunate Grammar

Beautiful Thought, Unfortunate Grammar

Beautiful thought, but can you see the problem here?

“…learn to be it’s master and not its slave.” Gosh, they were almost there! It’s = it is. Without the contraction, this sentence would read: “learn to be it is master and  not its slave.”

I’m a communications purist, I know, and I’m sure I make my fair share of mistakes. But this one is critical. For all you newsletter writers out there, make sure you’ve got a grammar-checker handy! People will notice. I guarantee you that.
