feel very sad about what's happening in Turkey. The Turkish President is a religious fanatic who is destroying Turkey. I know some secular Turks, and they are very friendly people. I hope that they can figure out some way to stop this terrible man before he completely ruins their country! I hope they can get back on the right track somehow.
