But the Kurdish people have another component of their meaning and place in this world, that eludes much of the rest of the globe.
They have history. A huge history, in fact.
I mean, did you know that evidence of the Kurdish date back as far as 3,000 BC.
Can you imagine being part of the same people group, from the same region, with roots going back over five thousand
America has only been around for a few hundred years, and most of my family didn’t make it more than a generation or two in the same area…
I slowly began to understand something of what had allowed the Kurds to endure the horrendous seasons of their history. Each of them belonged to a system of human connections that had come before them and would survive them, something living and God-given and more important than any one of their lives at any one point in time.
