According to a widely believed theory, sound never vanishes. The sound waves vibrate through the vastness of the universe with lesser strentgh but continues its existence. Some societies believe that sound is a piece of our soul and it shows itself in the steam of every exhale. Today, people from all over Turkey tested this thgeory by singing the national anthem in celebration of the National Sovereignty and Children’s Day. We witnessed a nation’s clasping together by surpassing all boundaries and limits as our voices joined together in the evening sky. Turkish poet Faruk Nafiz, calls Turkish his “sound flag”. Today we spreaded our sound flags wide from our chests and made up for the flags we could not wave with pride on streets. Today was another reminder that although we cannot come together physically, we are always spiritually together.
