A little piece of my literacy narrative….

The ability to master the elusive arts of reading and writing in the English language are things that today are openly viewed as rather trivial pursuits in light of all the other qualifications needed within the workforce, but being literate is not be taken lightly. These words that I write would be completely meaningless to someone who did not comprehend the basics of language or possess the ability to take in the many useless symbols we know as letters and decode the message they are meant to convey. What a sad fate it would be to have a life in which these symbols were left to do little more than taunt the onlooker with a message they could not understand.
