Brent Kennedy & Turks

Pittsburgh has a large communitiy of Turkish people. Over a period of ten years, I met and talked with so many college aged students while caring for my ailing father. These hard working students graduate to doctors, they are a very intelligent peoples. Many graduates work in some of the best hospitals in this country.

In 1996, I could not believe the Turks knew of Brent Kennedy and they ALL wanted to attend a gathering to meet him in person. They love Brent Kennedy for many reasons, one being his humanity and his concern and commitment towards peace.

Also, I would like to add that after interacting with the Turks in person and online, I find their personalities very similiar to Native Americans.
