At Popisms.com, we show you how pop culture (TV, movies, books, ads) is connected to other pop culture. For example, what song is in that Olympics commercial or TV episode? What book is that character reading? What music is another song sampling? We answer these questions and many more.

Plot / Description

Project Literacy's latest film we are proud to be promoting. 
 
Almost one billion adults don't know how to read or write. And their illiteracy not only affects them, it affects their families and all successive generations - because illiterate parents are much more likely to pass the problem down to their children. But here's good news: with your help, this is a cycle that can be broken.

(Lyrics) 'Cause I'm only human after all 
I'm only human 
Don't put your blame on me 
Don't put the blame on me 
 
Some people got the real problems 
Some people out of luck 
Some people think I can solve them 
Lord heavens above 
 
I'm only human after all 
I'm only human after all 
Don't put the blame on me 
Don't put the blame on me 
 
I'm only human after all 
Don't put the blame on me

Written Text

Do you remember learning to read? 
For a child it takes commitment. 
For an adult it takes courage.  
Donna isn't afraid to cook for her kids anymore. 
Mary doesn't get scared when bills come.  
David isn't nervous about getting lost on the bus. 
Andre has the confidence to read to his granddaughter. 
Almost one billion adults can't read or write, 
but if we can teach one generation, they can teach the next.
