19 May 1919 is the  day of the first spark of the struggle for existence of a nation, which will never give up its independence, against the great powers for the country, the flag and its sacrosanctness. Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk giving great importance to Turkish youth said: "Young people, you are the ones who have strengthened and sustained our courage. You will be the most valuable example of the value of humanity, homeland love, and culture you are taking. The  rising new generation, the future is yours! " and he gave this day to young people as a gift.

I celebrate 19 May Commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day, which is one of the most important symbols of the independence of our nation.
