This week’s footage: a brief clip featuring Rami, one of the teachers I met in my travels.
I met many fine teachers at Mar Elia in Erbil. Their commitment to the children in their care was total and inspiring.
Rami was one of these huge-hearted teachers. I walked into a dance class one night and there was Rami, about 6’1″, the dance instructor, dancing with this little girl, about 3’2″, with complete joy, concentration, and abandon.
In this short clip he is attesting to the extraordinary work Frs. Douglas and Daniel have done creating in Mar Elia an oasis of education and hope in a city filled with Internationally Displaced Persons very much in need of precisely both.
