One of the greatest gifts my Mother gave me was to instill in me the importance of reading. In doing so she made it possible for me to find my voice.
She did not even have a high school diploma and yet somehow she made reading well and learning of paramount importance to me. She instinctively knew there was nothing one could not learn if only one would read.
This fact has been borne out in my life in all of my endeavors. For example, I came to realize my activism in the fight for women’s equality would only be productive if I was as intellectually prepared as I could be. Reading would make this possible.
The more I read the more determined I was to make my voice heard. This process continues daily.
