Inspiration from Istanbul

We experienced this inspiration from Istanbul. Go through this inspiring story from Istanbul to know more.

We met a shop owner recently in Istanbul. He as a young teen walked all the way from Afghanistan to Istanbul. It took him eight months but he made it.

Ironically, we got back 60 Minutes aired an episode called “The Long and Dangerous Journey” (air date: 5/19) the day after. It featured many of the thousands of young boys from Afghanistan. And, they are risking it all for a better life.

No matter what’s going on in life, there are people out there who have circumstances that are worse. They are still happy and gracious. Also, they’re inspirational, and they don’t even need anyone else to see that. They just want opportunity and they take it upon themselves to get it without blaming anyone else.
