"Our presence in Istanbul was not a political act," he wrote in a CNN opinion post, further identifying most of the people he saw taking cover as Muslims. "We were there as humans, and we felt that we all wanted to live. We all wanted to have a future, and we all wanted to see our families again."
Kemper will be discussing the events of the terrorist attack as they happened, with a broader message of hope and understanding where people of all faiths can stand together as one against acts of hate, terror and violence whether they happen overseas or in American cities.
