Overheard: Ataturk's Epilogue

Overheard in Dublin, Ireland, 25th April 2013.

Ataturk's Epilogue

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 here; 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.
