Back in 1994, the United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organization (UNESCO), declared today as World Teachers' Day. Although teachers should be celebrated all year long, this is a day they're commemorated on a global scale. So today, we're acknowledging several teachers from around the world who persevered through unique circumstances to provide an education and safe haven for their students, who saved their students' lives both literally and theoretically, who set the example, and who stood behind their students when others tried to strike them down. And millions of more teachers are making a difference in their own ways, every single day, even as you sit there reading this article. Teachers are the backbone of our future. So tag the teachers you know and thank them on this special day, but ALWAYS remember to empower them, support them, and respect them for everything they do, every chance that you can. Happy World Teachers' Day!
