January Theme Day - CHANGE



"Be the change you want to see in the world"
Gandhi


What could be more important than helping a child become a better reader? Today some photos of STAIR ( Start The Adventure In Reading) reading programs around our city.

Today City Daily Photobloggers around our world are posting their interpretation of the theme CHANGE.

If only the change I wanted depended solely on me. Pray 1st.

2nd, Happiest New Year to you, wunderful Alabaman French woman Virg!

Julie said...

What an inspiring thread to remember as the year progresses, Virginia. Individual action may not be enough, but if enough of us act in concert, we can change the world.

I can keep that with me as I meander off into twenty ten.

Jilly said...

What a fabulous post for the word change,Virginia. I wish you the happiest of New Year's and have a great time in Paris. As if you won't!

A wonderful series, Virginia. And, as a former teacher myself, I believe there is nothing more important than learning how to read!

Great program!

Kim said...

Super captures of this wonderful event, V. I miss reading with my daughter and children at here school when they were young. She still enjoys reading aloud to me, though, so that is fun. We used to have DEAR Day in our community. . .Drop Everything And Read day. Literacy is so important and brings such pleasure to life!
Best to you in this new year dear Virginia, and much continued happiness as you bring us more of your fair city.
-Kim

Virginia said...

Happy New Year and I hope you will all be the change you want to see in the world!

Bob Crowe said...

Well, ah, I see you got a theme day thing together, unlike some people we could mention. Such a good point. Your Gandhi quote makes me think of Victor's post today. Is that you in the middle picture?

Virginia said...

So Bob, what's your excuse ???Hummm? We've had ALL MONTH to figure out the theme day ! :)
You get a pass since the acrobat photo is SOOOOO fab.

TheChieftess said...

Such a simple yet profound concept in Gandhi's quote...and so aptly demonstrated in these photos...

May this be the beginning of a very happy new year!!!!

Virginia I almost had tears in my eyes. This is such a moving post!
Yes I believe in being the change you want to see in the world and yes I believe education is the key to everything.

Probably the best post of today's theme.
