lighting storms and literacy

06/05/2008

Steph’s visit came and went faster than a beautiful summer’s day in Vancouver, but nonetheless we had a wonderful visit. It was nice just to relax and catch up while watching episodes of What Not to Where and John and Kate Plus 8. Her flight was canceled from Calgary because apparently the plane she was supposed to take was struck by the fire in the sky.

No one knows what happens when a plane is struck by lightning. Do you?

In other news, please visit Indigo’s Love of Reading Campaign site and sign the petition to stop the illiteracy/excruciatingly small budget allowed for books in public school. As an avid reader and lover of literature it’s physically and emotionally painful to realize that children do not have access to books. According to the documentary, Canadian Public Schools can only afford 1/3 of a book/child. One third! To think my nephew will be attending a school with such a lack in books within the next couple of years frightens me.

So watch the documentary and sign the petition!
