After so many conquering and reconquering, I’m shocked Armenians were able to keep their identity and culture.

Honestly just amazed at how old Armenia actually is sometimes. As a fan of Roman history, I knew it was quite old because any survey of Roman (or Persian) history will bring up Armenia over and over. Still blows my mind a little just how ancient their origins are. Respect to Armenia and Armenians from Norway.

When in San francisco, you will see on one of its hilltops, a very high cross. take the time, to climb that hill, and stand under it, and read the plaque at the base, as it honors the Armenians slaughtered back in 1916.
