I congratulate him for his courage and honesty, love of his language, love of his country and love of humanity.
I thank him for his art. I thank him for introducing to the world, one of the most developed areas of Turkish art.
And, I remind myself not to forget to finish reading my copy of â€˜My Names Is Redâ€™, from beginning to end, one of these days, instead of picking at it randomly.
Damn... I also wish for his safety and protection from all the stupidity and self righteousness of fascism.
