I tried to explain this wonderful literacy reference in class today but I couldn’t remember the line. So here it is:
“It’s like God gave you something, man, all those stories you can make up. And He said, “This is what we got for ya, kid. Try not to lose it.” Kids lose everything unless there’s someone there to look out for them.”
What a great literacy sponsor Gordie has! I just really thought it was a good example of what literacy means, even to these kids. It actually ties nicely into my “Nothing gold can stay” concept!
That’s all, just thought I would share!
