Giving Thanks

I am sure the attack on the American Embassy this past week is not news to you all.

I don’t have much to say, beyond that I am deeply saddened by the loss of the Turkish security guard, Mustafa Akarsu. While I never met him, he did a heroic and courageous thing putting himself in the line of fire, and his family should know the security that he provided, daily, for the Embassy staff, even after his loss.

Consider giving, if you can.

  1. Maybe it was just the one day that I was there, but he seemed a jolly sort. Laughing and small talk. From what I’d understood, he was rather pleased with the prospect of coming to the States with his kids.

    It was sad to hear that his story was cut short. Respect to the man.
