10.11.2008 - 9.05 a.m.

Today is the 70st anniversary of Atatürk's death. At 9.05 a.m. each year, during the minute of silence, sirens sound all over the country and people would stop. It's very interesting to witness the traffic stop and people get out of their car to stand up; people stop walking in the streets. All the flags are half mast.
