It's time to think, Hürriyet calls
In 48 hours, three funerals were held.
All three men were in the prime of their lives.
All three had a bright future ahead of them.
They couldn't had it.
Reasonable people in our country cried for three of them.
But we know that crying is not enough. History entrusts us with the task of seeing, understanding and doing what is necessary about it all.
Our country is too tense. Many people's nerves are frayed. Even the tiniest spark can cause huge fires.
We could all be burned.
This is why we'd like to address politicians.
Of course you would make all efforts to win the elections. Of course you will do what's necessary in the race for the ballot box.
Please, also ask yourself a question while you're in this race:
On top of a gunpowder barrel, who think they will be able to be a real victor in the morning of March 31?
Polarization and tensions have reached a point in which we have lost our sleep. Every funeral, every clenched fist, every troubled heart, is an alarm bell.
We all know that the only cure is democratic reconciliation.
Dear politicians, party heads, deputies...
Come together, join hands, send messages and take steps to soothe the society and to stress the rule of law.
The problem is based in politics, so the solution should come from you, the politicians.
We assure you that a softening on the higher echelons of politics will spread to all segments of the society in waves.
It's not too late, yet.
Meet each other, let's gather and save Turkey from this climate that is turning it into a children cemetery.
Otherwise, history will judge us all.
