Dr. Gage came for a book signing for his book Gulen’s Dialogue on Education and gave a presentation regarding Syrian students in refugee camps, his experiences in Turkey and other Middle Eastern countries, and how we, as a community, can help raise awareness for the people in need, especially in the Middle East. There were more than 50 people in both events and discussed the importance of education, the recent events in Turkey, and how we can connect throughout different generation, cultures and ethnicities.
He also discussed “The Black Swan” and how the older generation is becoming decentered around new things like technology and education and are forced to learn from the younger generation. According to Dr. Gage, “Black Swan” is not necessarily a bad thing. It can help people from all kinds of different races and cultures to bond and connect through different kinds of situations.
