I believe in each and every one of you. I know you have tremendous potential to change our society for the better. I believe so much is possible with knowledge, and that as you listen and read, so much more opportunity will be available to you. You are absolutely in control of how much you learn. By reading nightly, your fluency and comprehension will grow.
The choices that you will make now will influence your future. Be mindful of them. Be sure to take walks outside and enjoy quiet time daily. Be sure to read as much as you possibly can every single day and encourage others by setting the right example.
I promise you that the more you read, the more you'll want to read. So put your tablets and cell phones away, take a break from technology, and read a book!
