Today is International Literacy Day. Will you try to be literate?
UNESCO (a United Nations org.) & its partners promote the day to underline the significance of literacy for healthy societies, with a strong emphasis on epidemics &communicable diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis and malaria.
In countries all over the world, including the US & the UK, the day raises people's awareness of and concern for literacy problems within their own communities. Activities such as letters to the editor in newspapers, as well as news reports about the concerns for low literacy levels, have occurred as a result of this increased awareness. Other activities include literacy day projects, particularly with regard to technology and literature, which are promoted by various organizations including reading associations.
I'm going to TRY. May not succeed, but my heart's in it. Difficult on the interwebs, yes?
Join me in the attempt to be "literate" today. Or do something that promotes peace, spreads good will & attempts to increase awareness. Will you, please??
