“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement. I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms. When it is over, I don’t want to wonder if I have made of my life something particular, and real. I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened, or full of argument. I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.” Mary Oliver
“Remarkable is a choice.” Seth Godin
Early Childhood Literacy Update
Of our fifteen day care partners in Brooklyn, three are in Coney Island. Two of our Police Athletic League day cares and one of our YWCA day cares serve 170 children living in subsidized housing. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the dedicated educators at these sites to build home libraries in Coney Island.
