"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.", wisely said by George Santayana, a philosopher, essayist, poet, and novelist, and proved by many many times being true and applicable in the history of our civilization.
A very hard read for a person who shares the emotional legacy of Armenian Genocide (the Mets Yeghern). I hope one day we will see an enlightened, democratic and developed Republic of Turkey with educated society released of a centennial delusional canvas dogma of the Armenian Genocide denial. That day will come, and the new bold and brave citizens of Republic of Turkey will be able fully appreciate what a horrendous crime their founding fathers have done to Armenians and will be able to come to terms with the historic reality.
We, Armenians, have always contributed to building a prosperous planet Earth and its tiny part our dear Armenia. We carry the pain of the Armenian Genocide, but stay positive, visionary, bold towards the challenges of the future, millennials have been eroded, nations, empires vanished, but this ravaged part of land remains our dear homeland full of people with encompassing love for life, creativity, human progress and peace.
It is Turkey's sole call to seek reconciliation terms with the living generation of Armenians, we have nothing to be ashamed of, deniers should be ashamed of their exarcebating and incomprehensible mode of denial and delusion.
Let the future be more humanistic that it was before.
