One way to help children is to enable them to read and write
“Learn who you are, learn to be at peace with yourself, learn the effect you have on others, open your mind to new experience. Learn! It’s fun. It hurts. It changes us. And it keeps us ‘alive.’ (John W. Gardner in “Seven Words to Live By”.)
Those words often twirl around in my head. Learning excites me and I am grateful that I live in this country and have enjoyed learning opportunities throughout my life. I remember the panic and pain I felt when it looked like I would have to quit high school to bring in more income for my family. I did have to work to stay in school, making for long days. I have never regretted that decision.
Three major words that keep my life fulfilled are faith, learning (synonymous with literacy) and trust. Faith in God is the foundation of my life. Learning both in spiritual things and secular things keeps me active and thinking. Trust is part of both. “Trust is the highest form of human motivation.” It allows me to grow in faith and it helps me know by whose authority something is shared. Anytime you research for any reason it is important to know the reputation of who said it. The less trust between people, the more external control is needed. During the first 150 years of the United States, virtually all of the success literature dealt with fundamental values and character traits, integrity, patience, trustworthiness, fidelity, temperance, and humility. These were general values of society. Even those who choose to go against these traits know they exist.
