COLLEGE STUDENT WRITES TO PARENTS
A college student writes to his parents...
"Dear Mom and Dad,
"I feel miserable because I have to keep writing for money. I feel ashamed and unhappy. I have to ask for another hundred, but every cell in my body rebels. I beg on bended knee that you forgive me.
"Your son,
Marvin.
"P.S. I felt so terrible, I ran after the mailman who picked this up in the box at the corner. I wanted to take this letter and burn it. I prayed that I could get it back. But it was too late."
A few days later he received a letter from his father. It said,
"Your prayers were answered. Your letter never arrived!"

Cultural Diversity

Image
When will the geographical borders be deleted?
When will this rough world get quiet?
It’s a violent world of those monstrous wars
Which are led by those cultural conflicts,
Due to the challenge of globalisation.
Our world is our shelter
There are numerous cultures
With their significant diversity
Every one has its religion
Its culture and its own language
Every one is special and particular
Because he is him.
We are different because every one belong to a special culture
But we are one because the humanity gathers us
As we belong to the earth
I will love you, I will protect you
I won’t let you down
I will struggle for the earth
Until the dawn of union rises.

Sustainable Development

Image
Science, education, youth
Are magical words to fulfil,
Advance, prosperity and welfare
Nothing grows from wishful thinking
Even plants grow from seeds.
Success, progress are a temper of the will
A vigour of the emotions.
There is in every being’s heart
The passion of excellence
But it’s covered with the snows
Of laziness and pessimism
Education needs to be watered
With hard work and perseverance,
But so long as you don’t keep watering
It will fade and wither like a waterless flower
Whether you are illiterate or ignorant
There is in every one’s life
The light of hope,
The love of learning,
The challenge of events,
Don’t miss your future because tomorrow
The truth will be dawned on you.

The educational system

Image
The educational system is a very vital and energetic domain in the country. It’s the factory that products the next responsible for the future.
That’s the reason why we should think about the people that teach the students. So, these teachers should be their idol, their friend and their leaders. We need a teacher who is in touch with the new technology; I mean the one who can use sophisticated materials to teach the students; to protect them from the boredom. We know that some of students are familiar with the internet and the new technology, they are used to the interactive materials, to something new. So, when they come to class and they work with blackboard and chalk, they feel a little bit lost or bored.
Therefore; we need a teacher who can afford joy and in the same time knowledge to their students. We also need a student who loves his work an his studies, who is ready to continue the learning process, who doesn’t consider school like a theme park, this studen…

Morocco's language

Image
The original language of morocco was Berber, thanks to the Islamic expeditions the Arabic became little by little the official language, because it is the language of Qur’an and it starts by spreading from the north. By the year 1903 the French starts by spreading in Morocco because of the imperialist movement, but in the 1945s, it became the official language in schools, contracts, tribunals and all the administrations. By the year 1980, English appeared in Morocco and started to took its place as an important language. Spanish took its place and became strong in the north of morocco after the Spanish invasion. So, we can say that this variety of languages makes Morocco a rich country of different cultures which allow him to be in touch with all the countries.

The landscape of morocco is varied. We have deserts in the south, two ranges of mountains: Atlas Range Mountains in the middle and Riff range of mountains in the north.

Ben Handout was a small and poor village in the middle atlas where Nasser lived. He was a woodcutter. He worked hard but he didn't earn much money. Nasser was a gentle young man with a pale face and small eyes.
Nasser was punctual, every Friday, he prays with the people in the mosque and he never missed his pray.
Twenty years later, unhappiness and hard work at the forest had changed Nasser. The woodcutter was nearly fifty years old now, but he looked much older. His back was bent and his sad small eyes were very shirt-sighted. Nasser was a bachelor, he had never married and he had no friends at the village. Nasser lived in a small cottage, alone, he had nothing to eat or to wear now, because he didn't save any, money and he had no family.
Every night, Nasser locked the door, and then he prayed and asked God to help him and give him forty golden coins.

If he couldn't help him, he was going to die, and thus the tribe will die out.

A Survey: Dangerous Sports

After asking some students questions about dangerous sports, I notice that all my friends don’t like dangerous sports.
Two of them think that when people practice dangerous sports they can have many accidents because they are very difficult to practise such as climbing, skiing, weightlifting...
But only one person believes that these sports are funny and amazing.
