    You will love to learn
    the magic of words
    I guarantee it
    I'm going to make sure of it
    I will teach you how to go where you've never been before
    to places far and near
    places found in fairy tales and fiction
    places you've only dreamed about
    but in 43 years could never see clear

    Blessed is this day my brother
    for through your pride, courage and determination
    ignorance is gone
    The world is yours through written information
    It's the beginning of everything
    Everything you will ever need
    I'm honored and privledged
    Teaching you to read

    BE

    From my mother's mother, I know what hard work it is to teach adult literacy. This is nothing but love...My Grammy enjoyed working with them because she said most of them came to her, knowing what they needed and wanted, and were determined to learn. It was tough, sometimes but she never got tired of that little classroom. Very rewarding experience. But I know I don't have the patience.

    My hat goes off to you, Heartbeat. This is nothing but love, here!

    Shade :heart:

    just meeting him and being able to flow in his hope and excitement about what being able to read will mean in his life has given me in return much more than I am giving him. Thank you Shade.

    Public service, is at the foundation of what makes us strong as people. Loving your neighbor as yourself...most definitely, real love.

    Bravo, BE! :)
