About this title


I was born in Turkey, in the little village of Erenkoy, or Ophrynion, of Asia Minor. From my very early days I remember the abject poverty I shared with my family. I saw my parents toil like slaves from one Turkish village to another in the hope of earning a little something with which to feed and rear their children in honesty. They had to work very hard, never making enough to meet their daily needs. I remember my father going about his labors wearing his old hoghide clogs with sackcloth bands around his legs, while my mother, having to go to dig and work the fields, would take her younger child with her and leave it under a tree in the shade nearby, rather than abandon it to its fate in the empty village house, They were both toiling for long hours, without a moment's pleasure. Seeing all this I had made up mind, though very young, that somehow I would try to do better. So, when I was lucky enough, with God's help, to set my foot on this soil, I tried, with my hard work and honest ways, to reach the goal that I had set for myself in my mind. I am truly thankful to this great country, this AMERICA, that has given me the chance to enjoy so many things and to see my dream come true.
