After an unexpected overnight stay in Toronto, I am back home. This morning, on my way to baggage claim area at PIT, young George Washington was greeting the passengers. This is what it says on the explanatory plaque on the base of his statue: "On May 28 1754, here in western Pennsylvania, 22 year old George Washington fired the first shots of the French and Indian War - the first global war - that profoundly shaped the world we know today... and launched the career of the first president of the United States."
Evine Hoşgeldin, Oğlum
Toronto'da bir beklenmeyen geceleme sonra evdeyim. Bu sabah, PITte bagaj alanına giderken, genç George Washington yolcuları selamlıyordu. İşte onun heykelinin kaidesi üzerindeki açıklayıcı plakada ne diyor: "28 Mayıs 1754 tarihinde, burada batı Pennsylvaniada, 22 yaşındaki George Washington, - ilk küresel savaş - derinden bugün bildiğimiz dünyayı şekillendiren Fransız ve Kızılderili Savaşı'nın ilk ateşini attı... ve Amerika Birleşik Devletleri'nin ilk başkanının kariyerini başlattı.

Not a bad person to welcome you home, good choice of title :-) I like the idea of the statue of a historical figure in a modern airport. The dominant red in the frame is very eye-catching. Thanks for sharing.
