Your Gift is Their Lifeline
We are not fatalists,
nor pessimist by nature, and yet after four years of the Syrian conflict, and the seemingly resolute interference of a great world power, so convoluted are the knots, so dark the layers, so profound the conflict and so widespread the polarization, that no learned person or self-proclaimed expert can foretell the outcome of the catastrophe that befell us Armenians, striking Syria and the Syrian Armenians.
Everyone is an actor.
There is no country, political movement or alliance on the globe that hasn’t taken a stand, or more correctly, made to take a stand, vis-a-vis this ordeal.
If you’re confused, don’t be surprised. You’re not alone.
So powerful, potent, wilful and determined seem to be the obstinate masters from behind the curtains that there’s no immediate hope of peace on the horizon.
If only we were mistaken. Nevertheless, a cruel conclusion doesn’t seem to be very illogical.
The hour remains mortal.
If the fire and destruction, explosions and bombs, the armed and the mercenary are parading in Paris, San Bernardino or Brussels today, they have long been the cause of the misery to millions of innocent civilians in Syria including our communities, especially Aleppo.
When they are living the anxiety of defenseless self-defense,
WE SHOULD GO ON THE OFFENSE.
In a constructive spirit, LET US BECOME ACTIVE, swift and self-conscious of the need. Support our kin to sustain and survive.
LET US SUPPORT THE SYRIAN ARMENIANS AT HOME AND ON THE VICIOUS REFUGEE TRAILS.
