Condemnation for Boston Marathon Bombing

Boston-Marathon-explosion-chaos 151955As Turkish-Americans, We strongly condemn the cruel terrorist bomb blast which targeted the innocent people in Boston during the marathon. This terrorist attack did not hit only the people in Boston, but also all human-kind. Whatever the aim, terrorist attacks cannot be approved or tolerated.  Terrorism has no religion, race or nationality. That senseless act of violence obtained nothing more than the infliction of unbearable pain on victims and their families. We offer our deepest condolences and prayers for those affected by this senseless act of violence.

Raindrop Turkish House Saturday School Students experienced a fun yet educational field trip yesterday when they visited the Oklahoma City Fire Station no: 1.

To further their knowledge about Fire Fighters, they were able to walk to the Fire Station to see a fire truck up close and even walk through it. They got to see what fire fighters wear and how they prepare themselves to go fight fires or get called to an emergency.
