2012 has just started and as TEACH representative I cannot think of a better way of summarizing our mission as a Teachers Association than quoting some words that were pronounced in the World Day of Peace Message on January 1st (block capitals are mine).
"...PEACE is not merely a gift to be received, it is also a task to be undertaken. In order to be true peacemakers, we must EDUCATE ourselves in compassion, solidarity, in BEING ACTIVE within the community and CONCERNED to raise awareness about national and international issues...
...Let us feel a COMMON RESPONSIBILITY toward present and future generations especially in the task of TRAINING them to be people of peace and builders of peace."
Happy New Year from TEACH !!!!
