re: "we shall never forget"

I sincerely hope you will not forget the memory of those who were subjected to what was wrong...and still is today. BUT, if that wrong consumes you, clouds your judgement to the point of losing perspective....... What took place a time in history.... essentially causes you to hate someone today because what his/her great grandfather may have done to your great grandfather a century ago-- i'd venture to say: There is something wrong..... Yes, I said "may have done". Do you really think every Turk hated every Armenian in those day and still do? But I know a few Armenians who do.... and many who do not. What would you think of a jewish person today very vocally hating every German because.......?? Only one word comes to mind: NUTS! (No, I'm not a Turk..... if you are wondering and no, English is not my first language.)

Submitting....
