Kamal Ataturk – Greatness …

Posted on December 13, 2016. Filed under: Personalities, Uncategorized |

Kamal Ataturk, founder of the modern Turkish Republic, laments the half million Allies and Turks killed in the Gallipoli campaign  of  the First War!

“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 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”.
