October 29th and Ataturk

October 29, 2014

I want to talk about Ataturk little bit today because this day is the greatest day in my homeland back in Turkey! It is Republic Day. After Ottoman Empire’s 624-year rule over, Turkish people ends monarchy with the help of the greatest leader Mustafa Kemal Ataturk*.

I am thankful him so much for so many waysfor our independent. He is the reason we ended theocratic regime in Turkey. (even though some people try to destroy what he aimed for)He is one of the greatest leaders in the world. When we say his name everybody thinks a secular modern Republic of Turkey. I will never abandon his path and his  philosophy!

I worn these badges in honor of today. Red and white are Turkish flag colors and I add a touch with Ataturk badges which I bought in Anitkabir, Ankara. They remind me those old Russian badges which were worn by military people. (Or I could say more of WWII times, God forbid never go back to those terrible years)
