All that you would miss

Friday was International Literacy Day.  At our School Library Project we celebrated this day with an special  afternoon activity for elementary school students, a “One hour Reading Marathon”. Several volunteer members of the community assembled together at the library and read stories to children. We wanted to find out how many stories we will be able to read in one hour, at the same time bringing literacy closer to children who in most cases don’t have a single book at home and whose parents can’t support them with literacy because they are illiterate themselves. We also knew it will be fun.

Today, while writing this, I started thinking how my own personal view of the world would be if I didn’t have the gift of reading. Just think all that you would miss if you wouldn’t be able to read these words.
