Literacy and illiteracy
All over the world, there are people who cannot read or write. In the District of Columbia alone there are more than 200,000 — imagine if so many were blind and tapping their canes down Pennsylvania Avenue in a March against Illiteracy.
This is a wonderful thing to think about. If you are reading this, you are literate. What we mean is someone who cannot read a bus sign, make out the meaning of a government leaflet, health care, financial transactions.  God help us all.
Here are some links to gram marly — celebrate international literacy day (week; year)
