I got my 1st pair of glasses in the 2nd grade. We went to the drive-in to see the original Swiss Family Robinson movie. I looked up in the night sky and began screaming, “Aliens! We are being invaded!” My dad looked at me and asked, “Why the hell are you yelling?” I pointed up sobbing. “Those are stars.”, he said. My glasses became my superpower. I read every sign, book, and word I laid my eyes on. I felt like I was born again. That is how I developed my love of reading.
