The first edition of the Guardian in 1821. Composite: Miles Probyn/The Guardian
On this momentous day I wish to give my heartfelt thanks to a wonderful teacher. In 1972 I attended Oxford College of Further Education studying English as a Foriegn Language. One of my instructors, a very kind lady, as I recall, introduced us to the Guardian. We used to read a few articles a week and discuss them in the classroom.
It goes without saying that, this was life-changing for me. Since 1972 I have been reading the Guardian every single day.
I owe a lot to the Guardian for nourishing and nurturing my intellectual development and for sustaining me in this challenging and troubled world. I would not have been who I am and what I do and believe without the Guardian. For that I can not be grateful enough.
