The point of writing the journal!
Would be in the knowledge that the international communication tool to educate is by way of reading!

Complying he could!
The ratio would be greater,- than that of a person who could read information,- handed to him in the western world then in the poorest of the poverty stricken countries!

I write every day! And have always done so!
My journals have been lost a few times over the years from adolescents. .. but that is ok!

Best thing I ever did!
I.e " hear the information from the horses mouth.. "
Or, your very truth will be treated like a religious ,-
""Chinese whisper in the winds""
