In one month, on April 24, 2015 the global Armenian community and peace loving nations and people around the world will commemorate the beginning of the Armenian Genocide which saw the mass killing of 1.5 Million Armenians between 1915-1923.
Today, here in San Francisco the Ferry Building is brightly illuminated with the year 1915 to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Exposition.
The lights have far different meaning for the Armenians of the Bay Area and our brothers and sisters around the world, as the first Genocide of the 20th Century remains unrecognized. 100 years have passed. Let the lights be a reminder for us to bring the fact of the tragic history to light for the world to see; For the world to join us in remembrance, recognition and in our search for justice.
