Don't Be Afraid To Be Young

91 years ago, the address of future was penned by Him:

"Your first duty is forever to preserve and to defend the Turkish independence and the Turkish Republic. This is the very foundation of your existence and your future. This foundation is your most precious treasure. You will find the strength you need in your noble blood!"

We remember His address destined to the Turkish Youth on 27th Oct 1927. We remember his birthday on May 19th, 1881, born in Saloniki. We remember his
initiation of Turkish Independence War on May 19, 1919 when he arrived in Samsun on the coast of black sea region. We remember today's our National Day of the Commemoration of our founder. We remember He gifted this day to the Turkish Youth to celebrate as Youth and Sports Day!

A tasty day of the shining stars of our future with colorful balloons, kites, flags, concerts, poems, events, parades, shows,... It's too good to be young, or feel young at heart:)


  1. I love this. What a wonderful cause for celebration. After all, our young are our future.

  2. Nihal, it's really good to be (or feel) young. I think the body age and the mental age do not proceed at the same pace, often there is a sort of asymmetry between them.
    Have a beautiful evening :-)
