Happy Syrian Teacher’s Day

I’ve used to celebrate this day [Syrian Teacher’s Day] when I was in Syria every year. [I celebrated this day] since the age of 6 when I started going to school. I used to visit my favorite teachers at their homes to wish them a happy teacher’s day. They had a great impact in my life and I am grateful for them till this day.
Today, I also want to remember Professor Naassar, he was the one who wrote me the recommendation letter for IIT when I applied for the scholarship. Few days after giving me the recommendation letter, Professor Nassar was killed [during] the ongoing conflict in Syria. Happy Teacher’s day to all the teachers in Syria and around the world.
