“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.”


– Joseph Addison

National Literacy was yesterday, September 8th.  The statistics you need to be aware of are found in the poster below.  I have attempted to not add to the illiteracy pool by making sure my kids went to school and by having books around my house.  My desire was to instill a love of books and reading.  It is also my hope that many other parents will be their family’s literacy program.  Reading and writing will bestow dignity to a person.  It gives them diverse viewpoints.  It teaches discernment.

Find a book, find a blog, read it; write a letter, write an email.  Be literate and help make others literate, too.
