Turkey

The world has gone crazy. Yet another terrorist attack at a busy airport.

This time in Turkey.

I've been fascinated with Turkey since I wrote a research paper on that country in 6th grade. Drew is even more fascinated, the Sephardic branch of his family came from Greece and Turkey.

It's a hybrid, partially in Europe and partially in Asia. The seat of many empires over the centuries, it has a unique language and culture. It is a modern Western nation ...whose citizens are predominantly Muslim.

Modern, Westernized and Muslim.

And that's why ISIS hates the Turks.

Scary, scary world we live in.
