Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters (IV)


Monday 28 April, 2014 by Uncle Spike

This week’s fourth and probably final entry from me for the Weekly Photo Challenge is in both English and Turkish letters. It is the inspirational speech from 1934, made by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, founder and first President of the Republic of Turkey, in tribute to the Anzac’s who lost their lives at Gallipoli

As one Antipodean follower mentioned just the other day, “How many world leaders today would say such words?”

Hope you enjoy this entry

“Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives… You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side now here in this country of ours… you, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.”

  1. Sad that so many people just can’t get over themselves. So we have wars.
