Peres Sets Record With Biggest Video Civics Class Ever


Speaking to the students, the 91 year old Peres told students that "I am a lot older than you, but also at my age people get emotional, as I am now. Seeing you in the classes is a very emotional experience, as is being a teacher, and being a student, as I am today. I am jealous of you students," Peres said.

"Why is being a student so special? Because you gather knowledge, which stays with you. Money comes and goes, but knowledge always remains. These are two secrets of life you should know," he said.
