Default Tragedy in Istanbul

Dear All,
Tragic news about the bomb blasts in Istanbul hit the cover pages of all newspapers around the world.
I do not think we can do much about it, but I think what we can do is the following thing:
Many of us visited that great country of Turkey in the past. Many of us experienced how great people there are, how friendly, open and hospitable...Many of us recorded all these on our photos...
Let us establish the 1st of August as the Turkish day on TE, and post photographs from Turkey, as many as possible - as a sign that our thoughts go these days to that great country.
Let us collect as many green points for Turkey as possible!
Deep in sorrow,

Thanks Jerzy, my dear friend, for the concern.

yes, here the lords are frowning on us bitterly.
the society is shaking, politics is shaking, army is shaking, land is shaking, bombs are blasting, people are dying...
yet we're all trying to be fine.
a bit nervous, but fine.
thanx for the thread...

yep, very tragic and bad thing,
and today four female suicide bombers and a gunman killed at least 70 people and wounded almost 300 others during a string of attacks in central Baghdad and Kirkuk,
almost every day grenades are fired into Israel and over the weekend there were synchronized bombings that killed at least 49 people in western India...

let´s make every day a day of peace!
