Message to parents (Tribute – March 30, 2011)

Millions of earthlings consider the work of a teacher as the most difficult job. Wake up people! You are wrong! The work of a teacher is far easy than that of people working with the title “PARENT”.

Why did I say that being a parent is the hardest if not the most demanding of all the invented work or job in this world? Well, parents are persons who possess all qualities and they perform all the professions you can name. They were our first teachers, religious leaders, managers, bodyguards, and also our first aid doctors.

Our dear parents, from the day of marriage you have accepted the responsibility to rear a child. You have stepped out of the boundaries and faced the firing squad just to put us here. We have nothing in mind anymore except two words: THANK YOU.

Thank you for keeping us alive by working non-stop to provide food, clothes, and books – life.

Our senior year was really tough. Projects and other requirements were given almost every day. But look at us now, we are standing firm and steady ready to enter another dimension.

May this tribute be a way for us to thank you. It is simple but you are gonna enjoy what we prepared for you.

To end my message, let me share a quote taken from one of my favorite life-changing books entitled “Tuesdays with Morrie” written by Mitch Albom: “There is no experience like having children. That’s all. There is no substitute for it. You cannot do it with a friend. You cannot do it with a lover. If you want the experience of having complete responsibility for another human being and to learn how to love and bond in the deepest way, then you should have children.”

Certainly, you have loved us the deepest way. Today, we are giving you due importance in the most profound way. For the nth time, thank you!
