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.
