Literate for a Day
Someone or something you can’t communicate with through writing (a baby, a pet, an object) can understand every single word you write today, for one day only. What do you tell them?
“I love you. I will always love you.
“Read everything today that you can get your hands on. Read the Bible. Read the newspaper. Read every book on the shelves in our house. Read labels on cans and boxes. Read the funnies. Read the back of the cereal box.
“Read every bit of print I put in front of you today, and memorize this:
“To read is to grow. It is to understand. It is to learn. It is to travel around the world and into outer space. It is the key that unlocks everything.
“Always enjoy the gift of knowing how to read. Not everyone is so blessed.”
