Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

Those heros 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, here in this country of ours.

You the mothers,

who sent their sons from far away 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.


Mustafa Kemal Ataturk (1934)

Turkish Commander - Gallipoli Peninsular

Founder of the Turkish Republic

I agree Olham, very classy. I must admit, I've never read that passage before. Thanks for sharing, Shredward.
