EVERYTHING SHOULD BE UNDER THE SUN...
We have only one WORLD yet! If we destroy it, where else will we go?

Opening Remarks of the Light Millennium 2nd Anniversary


You Simly Give In And Write & Draw & Send
In Your Piece of Shadow...

by Cigdem ACAR


Hayatta en buyuk eglence baskasinin
Yapamazsin dedigini yapmaktir

The biggest pleasure in life
Is to do what others claim cannot be done

Walter Bagehot

Ben hergun saatlerce beyaz kagida bakiyorum. Beyaza bakan bir insanin icinde siddet olamaz zaten

Every day I am looking at a white piece of paper. There can be no violence in those who look at white

Kutlukhan Perker

Yeteri kadar nedeniniz varsa
Her seyi yapabilirsiniz

If you have enough reasons
You can do anything

Jim Rohn

Ya bir yol bul
Ya bir yol ac
Ya da yoldan cekil

Either find a way
Or open a way
Or get out of the way

Mumin Sekban

THE LIGHT MILLENNIUM IS MADE POSSIBLE AGAINST ALL POSSIBLE ODDS.  IT REALLY IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT IT HAS COME SO FAR AND CREATED SUCH A DEDICATED FOLLOWING.

Opening remarks: Cigdem Acar, Bircan Unver, Buket Sahin, Robert Baumann (with glasses) Anes Kurtagic, Julie Mardin, Nina Goksun Say, Angela & Burhan Dogancay, Reha Durakoglu, Mehmet Dede, Mehmet Uca

BIRCAN UNVER IS THE LIGHT BEHIND THE SHADOW PLAY THAT WE SEE ON THE SCREEN.  SHE DOES NOT MANIPULATE, SHE DOES NOT DICTATE AND SHE DOES NOT MAKE A PENNY FROM ALL THIS!

SHE SIMPLY TALKS TO YOU LONG ENOUGH THAT YOU SIMPLY GIVE IN AND WRITE & DRAW & SEND IN YOUR PIECE OF SHADOW. BIRCAN BELIEVES IN YOU MORE THAN YOU BELIEVE YOURSELF.

THAT IS THE REASON BEHIND THE SUCCESS OF THIS.

LET US NOW FINALLY RECOGNIZE BIRCAN AND LET US MAKE HER BELIEVE IN HERSELF AS MUCH AS SHE BELIEVES IN US.  Cigdem Acar, April 6, 2002, New York
