We -at college of pharmacy- next week will celebrate the IYC 2011 ,, and I will give you a report about that at its time ENSHA'A ALLAH,,

Now , I will tell you about what do I think about chemistry ?!!

It is an imaginable subject ,, but that imagination is real actually .. that is the interested point of chemistry . It is the basic of our living and non- living environment .. It is the basic of ourselves ..

As the galaxy composes of planets with different properties, stars with different shiny properties , space of different components ..

As the earth composes of different landmarks - seas , oceans , oases, mountains, plains etc...- differ countries with different traditions etc..

As the difference between cultures ,, difference between human themselves,, ...etc

As the difference between beauty and ugliness ,, between Mercy and Cruelty .. between male and female..between Nervous and Calm...etc

All what we can think about !!! We always find that chemistry play the basic role of all what we feel , hear , say , think , live , ...etc.. But Who Know that ??!!! So , It is nice to choose 2011 to be IYC. and that give us - who interest in chemistry at any of its types- a great responsibly to show the world;

What are the roles that Chemistry plays in our beings ??

Thank you,,,
