An Armenian Priest in Rwanda

Now here’s a blogger with an interesting take on genocide.

Father Vazken is an Armenian Priest, working in Rwanda. Here he writes of being introduced to some survivors of the 1994 genocide:

He introduced me as a grandchild of Armenian Genocide survivors. The ladies listened attentively. I tried to speak but got choked up. Was this not the scene of our parents? It was like looking through time in the aftermath of our Genocide, where women, children came together… where good intentioned souls got together to help. Did our mothers have the same support that these women have? How could they go on with their lives?

Armenia, of course, suffered an horrific genocide at the hands of the Ottoman Turks in 1915.
