Happy May 19th
May 19, 1919 is a major turning point for the Turkish nation. Because May 19, 1919, after the First World War on days when our land was occupied by foreigners, this is the date when Mustafa Kemal Ataturk went to Samsun with Bandırma Steamboat in search of a solution. Because May 19, 1919, is the starting point of days when the scene of history once again won a definite victory on the way out to get full independence with our nation's great honor and dignity under the leadership of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk,
For this reason, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk has entrusted the defense and protection of our republic to the Turkish youth who regarded them as the dynamic force of newly established Turkish state and thus came to Samsun and this day the Turkish Nation began the War of Independence, he presented this day with all sincerity to Turkish youth. That is why young people celebrate their festivities with enthusiasm on May 19 ceremonies every year.
Young people are the sole remedy of all time to get rid of the bad situation in the country. They have great duties. For this reason, young people must fulfill their inheritance from their Father, work hard and be useful to their country, so that we can reach bright tomorrows. The hope of tomorrow, which we entrusted our future, we celebrate our young people's May 19 Commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day; we wish health and success.
