Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Turkey. We are not strangers to earthquakes. In San Francisco, we experienced earthquakes all the time. Although I do not remember experiencing close to the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Ercis, Turkey, but I do remember the fear that earthquakes brought under my feet. I am glad that we are living under more solid ground now.
But for the people of Ercis, this devastation will be remembered for a very long time. People are still being dug out of the gravel, including this miracle survivor, a 2-week old baby Azra Karaduman. God bless her and her family. Luckily her mother and grandmother survived. They are still looking for Azra’s father.
