Being literate does not solely involve reading and writing... It also involves the ability to articulate well enough to change the mind of another. The ability to use the spoken word to paint a picture so clear that even the blind could see it. Let's keep the legacy of yours truly...Ruth Badar... intact by using our words to set the world on fire , using our words to make the intangible tangible, using our words to speak up for the weak, oppressed, and excluded. Let's make a difference while we are still here; someone is counting on us.
