September 11, 2001 was a Tuesday.

I was at my mom’s home. CNN International was on as most of the time, and we saw the news… after the second plane, we got the seriousness of the issue, America was under attack.

I called him to inform about the news that hit all over the world. He didn’t care much. He was happy to spend time with his friend and friend’s wife. He even told me later that day that he though I called him about the World Trade Center in close to Ataturk Airport in Istanbul.

Just a few days ago Friday, I was one of the last person was let go from the major media company I was working for. Turkey was in an economic crisis one more time and chancing, so the media was adopting the upcoming islamist politicians with new like-minded people. The person who is in higher position than me, divorced his wife who had two children with to get married to the single sister of the person’s who is in higher position than him to stay in the position in the work. Yes, I witnessed vulgar things in professional life.

And of course someone with no job or wealth is not worth to love, not a lovable person. You know today’s marriages are not for “good and bad days”. So our marriage was going to an end too.

The next November Erdogan was going to win the general election in Turkey for the first time, and our lives was going to change for worse for a life time.

And I was going to make some decisions to move to a new place to find some new motivation for my life.
