As the TAC family, we commemorated the 109th anniversary of the March 18 Çanakkale Naval War Victory and Martyrs' Remembrance Day with gratitude and respect. Our program, in which we commemorated hundreds of thousands of martyrs who put their bodies and selves on the line for this country 109 years ago, continued with a moment of silence and the reading of our National Anthem, followed by the speeches of our School Principal. After the drama performance titled "The Language of Love", our students portrayed Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and Dimitrina with a waltz performance, and then we listened to the mothers of our fifteen-year-old students about the sad feeling behind the folk song "Hey Fifteen".  
 
Gallipoli has been an eternal place not only for us, but also for the Anzac soldiers who, as Mustafa Kemal Atatürk said, "are now our sons and daughters". Today, as we listened to a special message from John Lambert, an Australian soldier who lost his relatives at Gallipoli, we realized once again how important Atatürk's emphasis on peace is. After Lambert's message, our ceremony ended with the folk songs "Uzun İnce Bir Yoldayım" and "Deniz Üstü Köpürürür" performed by our ECHO music group.
 
As the TAC family, we know that the Çanakkale Victory, which was a great achievement on the road to the Republic, was the first step of a beginning in which the foundations of the Republic of Turkey, an example for the oppressed nations of the 20th century, were laid and the torch of "peace at home, peace in the world" will never be extinguished. With respect, longing and gratitude!...
