"April 24: Today is the 101 years after the beginning of the Armenian Genocide perpetrated by the Turkish Government in the waning years of the Ottoman Empire. Many of my ancestors perished with the 1.5 million Armenians. Some survived and that's why I am here today. Grateful for my life and aware of the need to end violence in our world.
"As children, we used to throw flowers into the Connecticut River with my grandmother Azniv Sanjian Charkoudian, a survivor. Today Aline, Raffi, and I carry on the tradition at Sligo Creek, Takoma Park."
