I know that most of you know we are Armenian. Our father was full Armenian. Both of his parents were born in Los Angeles, but our great grandparents came to America just before the Armenian Genocide. Growing up, my grandmother talked to us about this often and I even did a report on it for my history class. I find that knowing your heritage is important in knowing yourself. I just wanted to recognize this day in our history and honor those who died in 1915.
