As the Armenian Genocide Centennial approached, and the Armenians of the world started shaking the earth with Memorials Remembrances, Concerts, Marches, Laws Criminalizing the Armenian Genocide denial… Amal Clooney eloquently argued the Armenian Genocide case in the European Court of Justice, Pope Francis presided at the celebration of Holy Mass on the Second Sunday of Easter for the faithful of Armenian Rite and described the 1915 mass killings of Armenians by Turks as the “first genocide of the 20th century” … causing anger among the Turks.
Artists, politicians, diplomats arrived in Armenia from all over the world, to take part in the Centennial commemorations of the Genocide. Armenians sang with System of a Down at the Freedom Square, “Genealogy” gathered from all over the world to prepare their song for The Eurovision Song Contest. Hoping for Charles Aznavour, Cher, Georges Clooney, Isabelle Bayrakdarian and many others to join too.
Kim Kardashian turned the attention of her 30 Million followers, fans, and non-fans towards Armenia… Giving an impression as if they really liked it there, and were deeply touched by the ancient civilization and the beautiful Nature of Armenia, by the people who gave her the very Royal treatment…. her Husband performed for the Armenian people, a free concert as a token of appreciation, and to the surprise of many, they headed to Jerusalem and baptized their daughter in the Armenian St. James Cathedral, yet again inviting the worlds attention to another important Armenian Monastery situated in an ancient town where Armenians lived and survived for Centuries.
American Armenian Artist Cher, who had visited Armenia in 1993, while the people were starting to open up to the world after the end of the Soviet rule, and although many might not remember her visit, she toured Armenia, visited the Catholicos, then, but due to her flu, wasn’t able to visit the then-president TerBedrossian.
Cher tweeted and started her own tweet Campaign about the Armenian Genocide, her trip to Armenia worked out well for her to start believing in Love after Love, the love of the Armenian identity that has endured so much but has survived and demanded Justice.
The Independent UK wrote “Cher: The mercy tour: Cher wasn’t sure what sent her to stricken Armenia, land of her fathers, to hand out love and toys. But she was looking for a way to change her life, and this seemed a good place to start” and quotes her ‘FOR A WHILE, I’ve been thinking, how do I change my life, how do I change my life? And the only way to change your life is to go ahead and change your life, you know? I’m really bored with my life and it’s up to me to change it. I just know that if you start making little baby steps in a different direction, you leave the place that you’re in. You know?’
Cher tweeted earlier today: “I Don’t feel anger 4 (or blame) the ppl of Turkey,4 something that happened 100 yrs ago,
But I think the Gov. should acknowledge Genocide (Praying emoji)”
and “A Horror Story my Grandmother Told me.
“The TURKS came to 2 Village, They called a town meeting and Shot Men and Boys, and Raped The Women and Girls.”
