40 Lessons in 40 Years: Entry 5

Education is a right and a responsibility.

Before I started kindergarten, my older sister Rose tried helping me learn to read. The thing I remember most about the experience was the feeling of being overwhelmed. How can I get from being someone who doesn’t know how to read to being someone who does? I didn’t know what I didn’t know, and I didn’t know how to stop not knowing.

Confusing, right?
