International Literacy Day 2014

Literacy is something I feel very strongly about.  I believe everyone has the right to learn to read and write and to be able to understand how to access information. You may be sitting there reading this and thinking to yourself, "Well, of course.  That goes without saying and without your flowery language."

My point is, however, there are many people in this world (young and old) that do not know how to read, write or access the information they need.  Today is International Literacy Day 2014 and it is a day to be thankful for what we have and to bring awareness.

UNESCO (i.e. United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) has created an amazing infographic.  Below is just one part of the whole thing.  I hope you'll check it out.
