21 Years to the day.

We're not going through the best of times in Turkey just now with 6,000 people having been lost to Corona.

I remember, back on 17th August 1999 when the 7.4 earthquake took hold around Istanbul and an overall 40,000 people lost their lives. Some of those, never having been found but accounted for in that dreadful figure.

I was at my restaurant in Kuşadası at that time. Our world seemed to stand still as we kept up with the day's news as Bülent Ecevit did his very best to deal with the situation.
It's hard to grasp that 21 years have gone by since then but I ask that our members take a moment to remember all those people, and also a thought for those that lived on without parents, or grandparents, or even, their children.

Time moves on and these events go down in history but, they should always be remembered.

Re: 21 Years to the day.

We were in Egirdir at the time, on our way back from Bodrum to Kuwait by car. on my return I did my very first PowerPoint assembly to show the students the extent of the earthquake and raise money for rescue efforts.
