Like the soil, we must labor to till or cultivate the mind so that knowledge and wisdom can accomplish the great achievements of mankind.  We must labor to insure that the foundation of our minds, the ability to read, is cultivated and passed onward from generation to generation.  Reading is the key to all educational processes.  It is the foundation from which we explore so many new opportunities, hopes, and dreams.   Without labor, we cannot accomplish much.  The gift of literacy is the foundation of life of the mind, the soil from which we cultivate our lives.  Future generations are depending upon us to labor in preserving and promoting the ability to read, learn, and apply our knowledge and wisdom in promoting and preserving mankind.
