Dear Memories

Yesterday I sat down running over the album of my old photos when my children gathered around me to congratulate me on the workers' day...

I show them some of the old photos of our celebrations on Labor Day in the past years... In the early days of my job...

There are a lot of old photos that tell about the labor marches touring Damascus and how we were gathering in one of the squares where speeches were delivered and outstanding workers and heroes of production were honored.

Other photos shows those celebrations that were held in one of the industrial facilities where workers meet from all over the city and talk about their achievements in the work, their rights and the privileges that the state provides them.

We were meeting the heroes of production in all sectors of government.
