Today is WRAD (World Read Aloud Day)

Taken from Litworld:

“World Read Aloud Day is about taking action to show the world that the right to read and write belongs to all people. World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words, especially those words that are shared from one person to another, and creates a community of readers advocating for every child’s right to a safe education and access to books and technology.”

Read something to someone today.  A car commercial’s fine print, prescription medication side effects, or even a story from an Archie Digest laying around – or substitute with a Bazooka Joe comic if short on time.

Maybe I’ll get a new short posted before the day ends…  I’ve been slagging.

    I wish I’d known this sooner. Thanks for the link. I’ll have to participate late this year and wait until next year to be on time.
