    ^^^ *nods in agreement*
    Scary to think how many would show up for Darfur, too.

    :) That’s awesome. Kudos for remembering my family.

  2. Thats pretty sweet man, props to that. I’m thinking of getting the flag somewhere on me, but i like your idea of educating people on how many people actually died during that crisis. Props to educating people, the more that know the better.

  3. I think you should wear that tattoo with pride!It is a great way to remember all the wonderful Armenian people who were murdered in the Genocide and it is also a great way to let people know the truth about what happened to innocent men woman and children…may we keep them in our hearts always.visit I care .com and put your name on the list if you care about what happened to our ancesters.

  4. My grandmother has told me of all of the men and boys in her family and how they were taken away never to be seen alive again.
    It is so important that people become aware of what happened to the armenian people.
    Hitler himself had been quoted as saying, “If no one noticed all of the Armenians that went missing, no one will notice the Jews.”
    Thank you.

  5. This is fantastic!

    Nine comments on this post only? I’m shocked. More people need to be educated about the Armenian Genocide. One and a half million Armenians were deliberately sought out and systematically exterminated by massacre and deportation by the Turkish Ottoman Empire and that’s something that should NOT go unspoken.

    As people we should acknowledge the destruction of the Armenian population, as should all governments in the world.

    It’s time for the Armenian Genocide of 1915 to be officially acknowledged. This cannot be denied any longer.

    People need to be educated about this.
