see the difference between a thread with harmless honest beautiful feelings and one started as an attempt to create uproar imposing false nationalist ideals?

that shouldnt mean i defend a worldview with no politics though!

hehe. You are all funny
if yilgul used Ataturk, or turk words in his post, u would criticize him too. everybody knows same members here. I dont need to explain. they even change it to politics when I post a song too. if this is a turkish language site or a site related to turkey. it s normal to send a post about 23th april and its history, and to explain why we celebrate it. I dont think I will be a nationalist, if I explain why 23 april is being celebrated as a children day in turkey.

I cant post anything on this site coz whatever I post it changes to politics. even I send a song about turkey it become criticizing our national anthem. BETTER I change my nickname, I can swear or insult, curse to ppl in private or in forums, then admin deletes my account, after I can come back with a nice nickname and I can be an europen as you. this is not a way I found

Quoting from Wikipedia:

The International Children's Day (ICD) is celebrated in numerous countries, usually (but not always) on June 1 each year.

The ICD had its origin in Turkey in 1920 (April 23, 192 and later in the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland in 1925. It is not clear as to why June 1 was chosen as the ICD: one theory has it that the Chinese consul-general in San Francisco (USA) gathered a number of Chinese orphans to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival in 1925, which happened to be on June 1 that year, and also coincided with the conference in Geneva.

June 1 has since been observed as the ICD by numerous countries, especially by Communist countries; in the Western world the ICD is usually celebrated on other days of the year (if at all), and there is often little public awareness about these celebrations. (See the section on Germany below for further discussions.) Consequently there is sometimes a misperception that June 1 as the ICD was a Communist invention. Nonetheless, in recent years even some groups within the United States started observing the ICD on June 1.
