Reading and writing are skills most of us take for granted. However, it’s important to recognize just how valuable those skills are.
In this video, we join a man on his journey to gaining literacy. This process is gradual, as the man makes a genuine effort to grasp the skills of reading and writing. We see the world contrasted with the words we take for granted against that of the man as he attends class, plays word games with his friends and practices his skill on his own time.
Through his diligence and effort, he is able to finish the goal he set himself—the completion of the book. And we applaud his hard work!
