Education Is .....

On December 5th, 2013, one of the world's greatest people died. He was a person who dedicated almost all his life to fighting against crutial racial discrimination in South Africa, which is calld "apartheid". He was a person who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. Who is this great person? Yes, his name is Nelson Mandela.

Now, I would like to introduce one of his quotes to you. Some of you may have heard this; "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." Actually, I don't know his purpose of this statement, however, I' m sure that people in many countries, especially in Africa and Asia need more appropriate education. They often cannot go to school because of gender discrimination, poverty, lack of facilities. Their lack of education causes many other problems; illiteracy, difficulty in getting jobs, high rate of child mortality, poverty, and health problems.  We have to solve this problem immediately; otherwise the vicious circle will last forever.
