Invocation for Literacy

Let us be thankful for the power unlocked

by a brain decoding symbols.

The ability to read gives the ability

to advance beyond poverty,

to learn what those near you do not know,

to discover ideas that may be hidden,

to unleash your potential.

Let us be thankful for the literacy endeavours of Rotary,

for changing the world one decoded alphabet at a time.

Let us be thankful for our ability to read, and commit

to embracing literacy initiatives.

Let us provide the ability to change the world.
