hey its fatih from turkey
our 1st premiry of turkey tell our feels lik ethat

"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."
ATATURK, (1934).

ANZAC Day has changed over the years. As a young, budding journalist years ago, I remember covering a dawn service at Cheras Road Cemetery in Kuala Lumpur...the ceremony was followed by a gunfire breakfast..and in Penang, it was at the town Cenotaph (near Fort Cornwallis)... and in Sandakan (Sabah) at Sandakan Memorial Park

Well, ANZAC Day has become very much a day for commemoration:
• we remember those who died in military service;
• those who served and survived;
• and others affected by war and the commitment to war.

Over in Malaysia, we think of the Australians who fought in defence of Malaya and Borneo from 1941 and the British and Indian forces too. Of Malaysians who suffered under the Japanese Occupation.

We think of Australians and New Zealanders who served, some gave their lives in Malaya and Malaysia during the Emergency and Indonesian Confrontation.

Dim is the name of a common soldier....
