The Forgotten Birthdays of This New Generation

Nowadays with social media, when we go to sign up for our accounts, there is that part where you put in your birthdate. Now that social media is here with us in this world, everybody gets reminded of a person’s birthday whether it is our friends and family. Some people forget their friends and families birthdays and have to be reminded by technology. I know some people still know people’s birthdays, but I am talking about those that don’t.
Our birthdays are forgotten by people now. When you are not on a social media outlet, people forget about you and your birthday. Have you been through that situation where people forget to wish you a happy birthday when you do not have a social media account? I know for some people that it is not a big deal to not remember a birthday as it is just another day, but for some people it is a big deal to them to be remembered on their special day. I sure feel that it is a big deal for me. It means that you are another year older, but it is nice to be thoughtful and remember without social media having to tell you.
It is good to put into a paper calendar or to keep it in your mind that it is a friends or a family members birthday and that you do not need technology to keep you informed. I think it is important to do that. Can’t depend on technology to keep reminding you of important events and everything.
Have people forgotten your birthday?
What was your reaction?
I know with day to day life, stresses and a lot of things going on in life that we may forget, but it is things like this that should be remembered no matter what happens in life.

Back On After a Mini Break

Hello Everyone,
I have not written in my blog for 2-3 weeks. Had a lot of things going with the commemoration of the Armenian Genocide, the events I have gone to, Plus celebrated my birthday, and I was not feeling well in all that. I had a bad cold. I am feeling better and back online to write full time now. What did I miss? Hope everyone is doing well. Its been one heck of a few weeks.
I have a lot to talk about and so much to share that has happened in the last little while, but I will be this month as I gather my thoughts. I just needed a break, but now here I am.
I will be back tomorrow to write again.

Deep Wounds of Genocide – Armenian Genocide

Deep Wounds of Genocide April 24, 1915 – 2016

In Remembrance of the Armenian Genocide

By: Talin Orfali

101 Years After, We Still Hurt,
Many People displaced from their homes,
Men, Women, Children were taken to the desert,
The Innocent Were forced to walk the many miles,
seeing murdered bodies by the piles,

heads, flesh, arms, legs broken up in pieces,
Bodies and innocent humans were left hung,
survivors looking to their loved ones seeing the crying faces,

Deep wounds of Genocide That will never heal,
The blood of our ancestors/family that we all feel,
Lands, Landmarks, Churches, Mount Ararat that they stole,
hearing the sad voices of people’s soul,

Terrible inhumane criminal acts,
Turkish Government that still denies/lies about the facts,
The Armenian Genocide wounds are so deep,
That the Turks tried so hard to sweep,
However, they could not succeed,

1.5 Million Armenian’s Massacred by Turkish Soldiers,
These are the wounds that will forever be on our Shoulders.

“Recognize, Awareness, Education, Knowledge, Prevent”


In life as we grow up, some people have the tendency to always want to impress people, and be like everybody else and be someone they are not in order to fit in. Ladies and Gentlemen, boy’s and girl’s, it is important to never try to fit in anywhere. Take a step back and think about who you associate with, or where you are and want to be employed with.

Being yourself is the best fitting in you can do. There will always be people who will appreciate and accept you for you. In this world, I truly believe that we all have people that suit us, who can relate and understand us. It may take time, and sometimes not, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel that you will see. Fitting in is so over-rated. If you ever think that something is wrong with you, and the way you are, that is just something absolutely ridiculous.

If ever in your life, you find that you are in the wrong place, the wrong chapter of your life, change your place, change your chapter and change your life. These are messages that are being sent to you saying that, its time for you to put your foot down and do something that will benefit you. Not for others.

Don’t ever be afraid to disappoint people just because you are not in their league, or do what they want you to do. Never allow others to make a mockery of you. Just because you are where others are, it never means that you do not have what it takes to do something or be someone special, because you are special and you do have what it takes.

Always be happy with who you are. Do not be afraid to fail, and never be afraid to try. Who cares if you do not fit in? you are in the right direction to be an individual that you are. Not on other people’s standards. Others standards do not matter, what truly matters is how you want it to be.

Don’t ever give up with anything in life. That is the easy way out in any situation. There is a quote I have read online “Why fit in, when you are born to stand out?” I truly believe in that. Stand out to people who are like you, and they will come to you or you go to them.

These quotes I found online as well. (unknown)

– Things just do not happen right away.

– be the change you want to see

– Some of the most wonderful people are ones who do not fit into boxes.

You are the example of your life, and never allow others to write the story of your life with your pen. Never allow them to hold it either. Not even for a fraction of a second. Everything you do comes down to holding your pen and writing chapters of what you want to do and be in your life. Never forget that. Don’t ever fit in. Fit out and do what and be what makes you happy. You are in control of your own happiness.

Sending Prayers to Artsakh & Armenia

Hello all, I apologize for not being able to write yesterday. I was just so upset at what has been happening to my Armenian people in Artsakh & Armenia now with Azerbaijan targeting us once again. They killed so many Armenian and Artsakh Soldiers and a 12 year old boy.

Azeri’s and Turkish people are the same. Well, the Turkish and Azeri Governments.

Later this month on April 24 will mark the 101st commemoration of the Armenian Genocide which happened in 1915 and up until 1923. 1.5 Million Armenians were massacred and as well as our lands stolen in Armenia.

Now, The Turks are striking again. Hopefully this madness will stop. Its getting out of hand. This world is getting out of hand. No where is safe anymore.😦 I am really scared for the future of this world.

The more hate and violence is spread the more this world will never get ahead.

I Just cant believe what is happening to our world.

Prayers, Peace and Strong wishes to our Soldiers in Armenia and to all those in the Military and Armies around the world. It is not easy to put lives on the line to protect our lands and our people. Takes a lot of courage, bravery and guts to do so.
