Literacy is important, rather young or old. It helps in every day life. We use literacy when we

me learn, things i would not have ever learned before taking this class. I want a bright future

Literacy is very important. Take a look at Benjamin Franklin for instance. He did not have
support from his father, who was strongly against literature. Ben Franklin had to teach
himself how to read, and write. So therefore he was very ambitious, wanting to succeed and
be successfull. Abraham Lincoln self educated himself his whole life. He taught himself
grammer when he was just 23 years of age. He also taught himself how to be a servayer,
eventually he studied law, then became our president. Abraham Lincoln even went to the
library of congress and obtained books on military science, then later was able to
communicate with the military generals.

Another person I would mention about literacy and being good at what she does is Agatha
Christie. She was a very ambitious person who strived in writing to improve her literacy.
Agatha Christie sufford from dyslexia and that did not stop her from being a successful
woman, who inspired millions of people including novel writers. Agatha Christie eventually
sold over 4 million copies of the books she wrote. Being successfull before she passed away.
