News services are currently repoting the passing of his Royal Highness Shaikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, President of the UAE since its inception over 30 years ago.

In a troubled and often unsafe region, this extraordinary man has created a safe, friendly, stable and modern country.

Rest in Peace.

It is really the end of an era. He was the last of the traditional Arab desert rulers and an impressive man. The peace of prosperity of the Emirates is very much a reflection of the respect that he had from all the leaders of the Gulf and the world.

I was fortunate to teach a number of his progeny and most of them were quite impressive, hard-working, serious students. My thoughts and prayers are with them today.
