In honor of international week, Pattonville High School hosted a presentation on Syria. I got to share my stories of Doha with students, Rebecca McLain Hodges gave insights to the history and culture of Syria, and finally students wrote messages of peace and hope to Syrian youths. A student of mine came up with the centerpiece design, a rising phoenix to symbolize wisdom and renewal. Students embraced the mural gift you have given them and are letting you know that we hear you, we support you and we value you! Many thanks and I will post more pictures as I get them.
