Educate me please

A faded sign that says "Praivet" caught my attention while I was on my way to work this morning - I am no good at spelling words and my tongue gets twisted every so often, but for some reasons, misspelled SIMPLE words or "B" pronounced as "V" and the likes always gets my attention.

For a second the sign seemed like a joke, but the truth is, that misspelled private was a writing of reality. Of course, no lawyer or PHD degree holder wrote that sign because obviously, it was written by someone who, let's just say, did not reach the proper level of education. Blame it on empathy, ignorance or poverty still the truth lies that a lot of people are deprived from their right to be educated.

It's sad, indeed. But being just sad about it won't make a difference. Everyday anyone can be an educator. Don't hesitate to share even the simplest thoughts you have to a person, coz without you knowing, you could be the greatest teacher to someone.

Remember, you don't have to be Einstein to do it.
