The foundation of this blog was cemented by the Assassination of Hrant Dink on 19.01.07. I was listening to Setrak Setrakian’s rendition of Arno Babajanian’s composition, Elegy. So
moved by Hrant’s shortened life by the virtue of speaking his mind that I wrote the poem, ‘Without You’ with Hrant's family in mind. The subject matter of the recognition of the ‘Genocide of the Armenians in 1915,’ is very much at the heart and the minds of Armenian's Internationally.
I want to say: 'Thank you,'
to Keith for the Creation
and Launch of,
and Armenag for the sources
If you feel it would be appropriate, please include a link to my Blog from your Site. I would like my Blog to be as eclectic as possible and include material from as many and different sources so long as it is relevant to my subject matter.
This well-established Blog is worth visiting on a regular basis for a wealth of information of interest to Armenian nationals and to the Armenian Diaspora world-wide. Although it has a particular role in promoting international recognition of the Genocide, the Blog encompasses much more and includes many articles of general appeal to all those concerned with Armenian affairs. Much of the content is difficult or impossible to find elsewhere and the long list of links provided gives easy access to a plethora of material on social, political, religious, educational and cultural matters, and many news items from around the world.
But they're front and center in our fight for the Armenian Cause.
Last October, Rep. Steve Cohen (right) joined with Reps. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), Turkish Caucus CoChair Robert Wexler (D-FL), and John Tanner (D-TN) in a Capitol Hill press conference AGAINST the Armenian Genocide Resolution (H.Res.106)

Which brings us to Nikki Tinker - a principled, talented and devoted community leader, with an exemplary record of public service. She has pledged to fight for Armenian Genocide recognition, to help Nagorno Karabagh, and support Armenia. (See her ANCA Questionnaire response)
She is mounting a powerful challenge to Cohen in the August 7th Democratic primary and, with your secure on-line donation, will replace him in Congress.
I'm especially proud to say that she has the enthusiastic support of former NFL lineman Rien Vartan Long, a devoted Armenian American who has played for the Tennessee Titans.
Defeating Cohen will send a powerful message to deniers in Washington that their days of kow-towing to a foreign government and covering up mass murder are quickly coming to an end.
The election is only weeks away. The race is close and the choice is clear. Who will it be? Cohen or Tinker?
