Reading is a plus in one's life. Here our 78-year-old caretaker's husband is able to read perfectly. The girls came running to me when they saw him reading and asked me if they could ask him if he finished school. He told them how he went to school in the old days and how he was the brightest student in his school. The girls listened with interest and promised him that they will work hard so that they can read clearly and read to their children later on in life.
