Rector Yarılgaç’s Message on 12 March Turkish National Anthem Acceptance Day
The elements that bring people together and make them conscious of being a nation are concrete or abstract values that connect and hold individuals and communities together. The National Anthem which was written while living in a line between the whole nation and the absence is a common partner from the experiences of the nations in terms of victories, sacrifices, dreams, dreams and the ideals of the nation in the blood and gunpowder smells, the sound of guns from the fronts, the smell of gunpowder is one of the most important values that make people feel the deepest sense of being a nation. The National Anthem is a declaration that reflects and declares all the values of our nationality, its glories and beauty, and the national life.
Another characteristic of national anthems is that it reflects an extraordinary state in which the nation has lived. The years in which the Independence March is written are the most critical months of the National Struggle. Our holy nationality lived in these days feelings of anxiety, hopelessness, hopelessness, triumph, and joy in a row and in a mixed state of excitement. These feelings are very well reflected in the Independence March. With this poem, the Turkish nation has found its belief in existence, its ministry and will. This anthem is not merely the black days it is written on, but on the contrary, it is the antiquity of the fate of the Turkish national being, and it is like a miracle of the nation's superior virtues, sacred values.
With this important and meaningful day and time, we recognize all the heroes of the War of Independence, especially Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, our National Poet Mehmet Akif Ersoy with the mercy, gratitude and respect.
