I snapped this pic a couple of weeks ago. The cows were enjoying themselves on the shore of Lake Sevan. Somehow, the whole sight seemed incredibly peaceful to me, so I decided to share it with you.

The Armenian Massacre Still Haunts Its Last Survivors 100 Years Later. National Geographic

I stumbled upon this 3-minute video by the “National Geographic” today and decided to share it just in case you haven’t seen it either. Here’s a block-quote from the video’s description:

Starting in 1915, 500,000 to 1.5 million ethnic Armenians living in Turkey were killed or expelled from their ancestral lands, where they’d lived mainly peaceably with the Turks for centuries. Armenians call the slaughter genocide; Turks say it was the consequence of the larger war, in which many groups, including Turks, suffered terribly. Five of the few remaining Armenian survivors reflect on the horrors they faced fleeing their homeland as children and on what life has been like for them in exile.
