I would like to talk about education

Without education you can’t go to somewhere.
Without education you will lose your culture.
Without education you will be like a blind person.
Without education you will be like a deaf person.
Without education you will lose your goals.
Without education you will be a harmful person.
No education no life.
No education no love.
No education no peace.

My first day to go to school

It was Monday morning when by beloved parents took me to school and I started class one to class eight now and I understand how my life will help me in education.

  1. Education is the only way to success.
  2. Education takes you from dim life to bright life.
  3. And it was said in a proverb “ignorance harms the body more than AIDS.
  4. Without education you can’t go to somewhere.
