“THE ONES WHO SPEND THEIR LIVES FOR THIS NATION, WILL NEVER DIE IN THE HEART OF IT”
In his presentation of Mehmet Akif Ersoy’s life, Fatih Akbaba included the following statements: “Dear youth, if you want to get along with Mehmet Akif Ersoy, you are the hope of this country. Open your arms and spread your arms around the whole of Turkey, hence, this country live forever on your shoulder with the National Anthem.
We need Mehmet Akifs, who loves his country and protects his nation with the same loyalty. There are the youth who will direct the future of Turkey, who will direct the cities of Turkey, and the youth who will be a manager no matter where she/he goes. To be able to write the National Anthem, we have to be decent, first.
Akbaba performed his presentation about “getting along with Mehmet Akif” by stating that “Dear Young; you can be the number one whether in trade, in politics, in the bureaucracy of your city, of Turkey, and even in the world. But if you are not in the position to take your parents’ prayer, you are nothing. The hands of the mothers are kissed in the palm. Because when the mothers pray by calling your name, the name is written in their hands that they open while praying. Kissing a tombstone is the coldest kiss in the world. Go home when still alive, kiss your mother’s, father’s hands. Remember who spend their lives for this nation, will never die in its heart, just like the patriotic poet Mehmet Akif Ersoy”
Akbaba who aroused students’ interest with emotional narration and examples, narrated the patriotic poet in an emotional fund-music and a didactic way from which the audience can take a lesson. Akbaba who signed his books after the seminar and conversed with the students and has taken a souvenir photo.
