Now I'm sitting in my hotel room waiting for a couple of miscellaneous meetings and cleaning up around our office before I head to the airport and home.
I just realized yesterday that my whole reading deprivation was going on at the same time I was producing videos about literacy projects/classes in El Salvador. Classes taught by local women in their neighborhood. They go door to door looking for students. This organization has sixty classes just in San Salvador, teaching thousands of people to read -- most of them adults or elderly.
I had to make an effort not to read for a week and they are making huge sacrifices to learn how to read. Such a huge contrast.
Well, now it's time for me to go and I didn't really say any of this quite right. I don't think I even figured out what I was trying to say. Just wanted to get something posted....
