Be the Change

A few months ago the team of educators planning to go to Zambia had our first meeting. At that meeting Ann Yanchura handed each of us a journal with a piece of the famous Mahatma Gandi, “Be the Change” quote on the cover. The journal brought tears to my eyes then and inspiration to my heart now. On this Memorial Day Monday I am diligently working in my journal. Brainstorming plans, creating lists of supplies, asking questions, and organizing lessons.
I am honored to have this time to remember our fallen soldiers who fought so hard for democracy and freedom. I am honored to remember them by continuing to fight for the same reasons that they gave their lives. Through literacy, the boys and girls of Zambia will know their rights, work towards equality, and help each other experience the freedom that comes with reading, writing, and education.
