Armenians Travel to Austin for
Armenian Genocide Recognition
What a spectacular day in Austin yesterday! Approximately 50 Texas Armenians arrived at the State Capitol at 8:00 am for the hearing on House Resolution 191 to recognize the Armenian Genocide and remained until its conclusion at 2:00 pm. After the hearing, we distributed literature to the 150 representatives and 30 senators at the Capitol, followed by a special screening of "The Promise" in the Capitol auditorium.
Below is a photo of some of us with Rep. Scott Sanford, who sponsored the resolution. He is standing in the back center of the photo in the hearing room. Our thanks to you and your staff, Rep. Sanford!
While listening to denialists was emotionally exhausting, many of us successfully refuted their points. One reliable source is optimistic of a favorable vote. Naturally we will not know the outcome until the committee votes, which is likely early next week.
We have many, many people to thank for making yesterday possible. Please let me know if I missed anyone - my arms are wide open with gratitude.
First and foremost, let us recognize Lucia Nazarian. Because of her passion, conviction, and work with Rep. Sanford, she has been instrumental in getting Texas closer to recognizing the Armenian Genocide. Brandon Aghamalian also deserves deep gratitude for his help and testimony, which was delivered with heart and precision.
Sincere thanks to ANCA's Haig Baghdassarian, who flew in on a red-eye flight from San Francisco. His help was invaluable to our preparation and, because of it, everyone, including me, felt ready and organized. Many thanks to Emily Sample with the Holocaust Museum Houston, Bryan Ardouny with the Armenian Assembly, Taner Akcam with the Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at Clark University, Ani Manoukian and Natalie Gabrelian with the AGBU, and Adam Bittner with Open Road Films. All of these amazing people and many others made yesterday a poignant day for the cause of truth.
Last but not least, a very big thank you to everyone who traveled to the Capitol; you came from all over the state and played a vital role in securing House Resolution 191!
How can you participate after the fact? Share this link to the story broadcast all day yesterday. Thank you to Jacqueline Sarkissian with Fox News for reporting the story. http://www.fox7austin.com/news/local-news/250371089-story
Wish you were there? Here's a link to the committee hearing. The Armenian Genocide hearing begins at 2:14 (yes, at 2 hours, 14 minutes). The Armenian hearing lasted approximately 3 hours. The link does not work well in Chrome so you may want to use another browser.
If you haven't seen "The Promise," please do. As the film states, our best revenge is our survival. God bless each and every one of you.

“The Promise” movie which Kirk Kirkorian made about a love story during the Armenian Genocide is still in theaters. If you have not yet seen it, please make an effort to attend a viewing. If you have seen it, please attend it more than once in order to encourage such movies to be made in the future. It is very important that not only we see and support this film, but we also invite and treat a friend to see this movie.
Please share the list of theaters below with your friends, family and acquaintances.
(NOTE: The Studio Movie Grill in The Colony, Plano and Spring Valley/I-75 will also shop "The Promise").
Upcoming Requiem Services
NEW AT ST. SARKIS ARMENIAN ORTHODOX CHURCH!!!
Dear community members,
We are proud to announce that Circle of Joy is advancing its format! Beside being a group of families who come together for playdates (according to the ages of children) or other fun activities to creates friendships between mothers, fathers and between children in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere, it is also reaching out to the community members who may need support during difficult times.
This family-oriented group is starting a new program, called Food For Soul. The idea is to deliver meals to community members such as new moms, faithful who have had surgeries or parishioners who are in general need of a good nutritious meal. Volunteers will deliver food to the recipients' house (they should not to stay or enter the home, but just drop off the meal at the door).
Recipients may request dinners on specific days of the week or throughout the one or two week period (depending upon the situation and recipient's needs). Volunteers will sign up to deliver the food through a specially created, personal calendar that will have all the details and necessary information.
