A Post about Sayeed.

Many of you know my son Sayeed. Two years back he had super support of the community which elected him to be a Board Member of the local school board. He was the youngest in that group.

Last night the board elected him for the presidency of the school board. I am so proud of him. My son, the perfect gentleman on the block, is now the president of Quincy School Board. He called me yesterday about 6 p m  and told me that he wanted to share something with me before it got on the news and/or I heard it from someone else. I was so flabbergasted and nervous, and didn’t know what he was going to say. Then he told me about his election. I almost cried. I wanted to share this good news with my friends here.

I am blessed with such wonderful children.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.
