Ataturk's Birth
Today is Youth and Sports Day in Turkey which commemorates Ataturk's Birth in 1881. Lots of sporting events are going on in the country, and in our local area school bands have been marching through town in celebration, as well as a parade infront of Ataturk's Statue.

yes, its good to see how this man is so revered, he did so much for Turkey both as a miltary man and political leader. İ dont think that he has an equal.
İn Alanya the schools have been practicing the last few weeks for todays celebrations.

Same here Shirl. Its great to watch all the preparations then see all the excitement on the day. All my Turkish neighbours have got their Turkish flags flying. Like you say, its hard to think of someone else so revered.

Sounds great! Looking forward to seeing it for myself next year. National pride with everyone joining in is something the UK could benefit from. Not sure whom we could rever though!
