This Turkish Couple Just Defied Tradition By Making Their Wedding Day About Everyone Else
For almost every couple, their wedding day is "their day" - particularly the bride's - as it should be. It's the most momentous thing either person will do in their entire lives - it should be about them.
But Turkish couple Fethullah ÃœzÃ¼mcÃ¼oÄŸlu and Esra Polat decided to forego that, and made "their day" about others in far more need.
Kilis is located just north of the Syrian border and has been a popular safe-haven for Syrian refugees since 2011 when the conflict began. Since then, roughly four million Syrians have fled their war-torn country.
Working together with charityÂ Kimse Yok Mu, the couple stood behind the counter, still dressed in their wedding attire, and spent the entire day serving theirÂ Syrian neighbors.
â€œWe think weâ€™ve made an investment in happiness by sharing our dinner with Syrian refugees living in our city.â€
If this isn't an example of how to love your fellow man, I don't know what is. We could allÂ learn a lesson in from these two.
