WHAT THEY SAY FOR ATATÜRK!
He was not only the great chief of his brave nation. He was also one of the
greatest sons of humanity.
Those like Atatürk are not born for a generation or a limited period of time.
They are men who will be the leaders of their nations for centuries.
The deep mourning of the brave and noble Turkish Nation has reached its peak
today. Because today, the Turkish Nation is to take its most honoured and most
distinctive child to his grave. Sounds of crying and mourning are to rise today
from beautiful Ankara. The Turkish Nation today is under a great distress
because they have to be apart from their chief who had lead them and inspired
them in every way. Atatürk was not only the great chief of his brave nation. He
was also one of the greatest sons of humanity.
The mission of the committees representing millions of people that attend to
the burrial ceremony of Atatürk is to express the feelings of sorrow and pain
that people feel for this irrecoverable damage.
Such ingenious men never die. Because their deeds that have been carved deep
into the Conciousness of their nations will make them live forever. Such men are
not born for a generation or for a limited period of time. They will dominate
the histories of their nations for centuries by letting them use the endless
source they have created.
The Royal Palace, the Shah and the government have announced mourning for a
month because of Atatürk’s death. His Majesty the Shah has ordered to lower the
flags in all military and official buildings of Iran and the embassies of Iran
in other countries till the end of the burrial ceremony. The Shah’s decision has
been announced in all papers of the country today.
