In Turkey…

I’ve travelled much…

I visited Turkey, starting with Istanbul (which my grandmother always called Constantinopla) and I began to learn about the country’s history…

I learned that Atatürk was a great man. Should have been honoured as “Man of the Century “…

He created a secular and democratic nation from a part of what had been the Ottoman Empire…

He wanted his fellow Turks to look to the West…

I have read about him and greatly admire him.

I suggest, if you like history and you want to get to know some of those that have made history in outstanding manners, that you read more about Atatürk…

I leave you with this short video I made a few years ago:

    Ataturk is a model that I wish more men in the Middle East would emulate.

    1. Yes, that is true Janet, lamentably there are none like him that I can think of, at the time…
      Thank you and all the best.
