‘From the pen, there is a notebook.
From the notebook, there is a book.
From a book, there is a teacher.
From a teacher, there are generations.’
The line from a Syrian woman/girl in refuge was powerful.
What an enoumous courage those people have, to be providing incredibly powerful stories of their and their loved ones’ lives, in the public hearing!
And what a severe deprivation they are facing in Syria! And it continues after their move to a new place, if they manage to do so.
I believe in the power of education, in particular critical analysis and thinking. I hope to be one of such teachers who can make a slow but consistent contribution to the following generations.
