Educate Yourself About Weight Loss
My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors. (Maya Angelou)
Education – The act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life.
What’s The Difference Between Ignorance And Illiteracy
Ignorance is a lack of knowledge. All too often, people are ignorant simply because they never want to bother to learn something. To me, ignorance is a lack of knowledge that can be prevented. If someone who is ignorant simply decides to learn something, they can overcome their ignorance.
Illiteracy, on the other hand, is a lack of knowledge that results because many people have never had the opportunity to learn. They have not had the opportunity to acquire knowledge. They have not had the opportunity to get an education.
The Ignorant Have The Choice To Overcome Their Ignorance
There is an old saying. It’s one thing to be ignorant and another to be proud of it.
For example, when I don’t know something, I will frequently be the first one to admit it. I don’t take any pride in not knowing something, but I will admit it. Then I consciously make a choice to either go out and acquire the additional knowledge in that area, or I will decide that it’s not really that important and I don’t need to bother with it (probably because it’s something not that important).
In other words, Ignorance is a choice.
The Illiterate Often Do Not Have A Choice
Many people in the world are illiterate simply because they never had the opportunity to obtain an education. For example, while my father knew how to read and write, he had to quit school in the 5th grade in order to go to work to help support his family. In other words, he lost the opportunity to further his education.
The same thing applies to poor people around the world. They may be attending poor schools or they may not have the ability to go to college. The bottom line is that they don’t always have a choice.
This is why we must understand the situations and causes behind illiteracy.
In fact, we must constantly strive to overcome these situations and causes and seek to educate people all around the world, especially the children of the world; as they are our future.
