Life is just a short road

For most of the day I could not forget Dr. İbrahim Halil Zarif, a participant over the past few months on courses held in Istanbul, learning English.

I saw a quiet, considerate man, who always had a smile for all.

His life was taken along with his wife, by a gunman, leaving small children to face the rest of their lives without loving parents.

Life is but a stopping place along the road to eternity. We all have different journeys to take, different paths, and it is along the way that we meet others, to learn from them love, kindness and compassion.

Let us that remain to take that final road, pass on and teach to others that love, kindness and compassion, especially the children.
