I'm a fan of Ece Temelkuran. She has been warning us about how what happened in Turkey, could happen here, too.

Good people in the world will always fight back. We always have, and we always will.

This should lift us up. Erdogan was claiming victory early with 56+%. The last numbers I saw? The margin was far slimmer. And if the Kurdish party pulls this off after final votes are counted, it's a huge win against astounding odds.

The lesson is? Never give up, never stop pushing back.
