We Love You
- Thank you -- Ward
Wow, that is so cool. I have just read your userpage and see that you have the same problem with reading that I do. I find that one of my best ways to be able to read is to edit.....which I can do only as I read. Not only do I read slowly, but I cannot seem to keep my mind on the words on the page.......unless I am DOING something with regard to that reading. Being able to edit the words gives me that something to do, and makes reading possible for me......reading which I would not otherwise be doing.
Thanks for creating wiki. You have changed the world.

As there is a Wikipedia article about you, you are cordially invited to contribute a short audio recoding of your spoken voice, so that our readers may know what you sound like and how you pronounce your name. Details of how to do so, and examples, are at Wikipedia:Voice intro project. You can ask for help or clarification on the project talk page, or my talk page.
