Defending Ellen DeGeneres – I’m On Her Side

Defending Ellen DeGeneres – I’m On Her Side

In recent news, you may have heard rumors going around that Ellen DeGeneres has put her staff in a toxic work environment where they feel mistreated, intimidated and feeling like she puts people under pressure, but I am going to defend Ellen DeGeneres because I do not believe for a second that she has done these things to bully and torture her staff. I think these are just bogus and done out of jealousy. Jealousy is a powerful thing and it can ruin everything.

Every work environment is not perfect. Employees, clients and customers may have disagreements, do things differently, obstacles may come in the way, and some days can be good and / or bad. Its the magic of work. Nowadays everybody gets so offended and are so sensitive on everything always takes everything the wrong way.

Ladies and Gentlemen, life is unfair and the good people in this world are the ones who always get treated unfairly, they are the ones where people make up things about them that aren’t true, good people always get trampled on. Jealous and Itimidated people always find a way to ruin a good persons reputation and its really sad to see.

Ellen has changed so many people’s lives for the better, she has donated to causes, she has given people a second chance at life, helped families, has flown people to be part of her show, has helped families go on vacation, built homes for people, given her audience things, 12 days of giveaways, she made the show what it is, she’s done so much for schools, and so much more. She has helped kids gain stardom and her slogan at the end Be Kind to One Another. I do not believe for a second that she is unfair to the people that work for her.

I am sure her show has been so successful and with the people who work for her and herself. Look at all the Emmy and people’s choice awards the show and her crew have received. They should appreciate her and the hard work she has put in to employ all these people. They should be glad to be in this business of entertainment. There are people who want to get into something like this and they cannot, but it looks to me that these workers of hers do not appreciate anything and so they want to hurt her name and her career because they are jealous of her.

It isn’t easy working in the entertainment industry with long hours, and a lot of work, writing, filming, lighting, décor, and a lot of other things goes into it because its not just the crew, the stars and everything, its to think about what to do for fans who are watching these talk-shows, films, TV shows, soap operas, game shows and everything. Its not easy, and I am sure these workers who signed up for these knew that and that is what they signed up for.

With the Corona virus going, it is hard to decipher when things will get back to normal and when her coworkers can return to working and so her workers are also saying that they are unfairly treated because she isn’t telling them a lot about how the show will go on after the pandemic, but now we all don’t know how things will go. We don’t know what happens tomorrow, we don’t know what happens in a month from now. I think this just all bogus just to tarnish Ellen DeGeneres’s name.

I am defending Ellen DeGeneres because she is a good, kind-hearted person, and she has been someone I respect for so many years having tuned into her shows. I had been trying to get on her show to educate people on bullying, and how to deal with social issues, and to just meet her and to bring positivity to her show as she has, but due to the amount of emails, messages and everything she gets, its hard for her to get my messages which is totally understandable and as she is a busy person with a lot going on.

When you are a good person, people take advantage of that and then start to ruin a good name, they start to get jealous and that is what is happening now. So now, people start to get people to join in to take her down and it is so wrong. I think it is important to not believe everything you hear about a person.

I am sure she feels absolutely betrayed by the people she employs and that she could count on everyday. It is absolutely disgusting. Now, she has been forced to apologize for things that she did not do and I know for a fact that she did not. Whenever I have that gut feeling about someone, I am always right, whenever I feel how a person is good, kind-hearted and thoughtful, I am always right.

Think twice, three times before you believe in headlines about a person.
look at my article about destroying a persons reputation.

I am staying loyal to the awesome Ellen DeGeneres and nothing will change my mind about her because I choose not to believe it. Be careful and be mindful as well. Thank you.

The Bildbord App – Social Media In An All New Level

In our lives, social media plays a big role and how we connect with others on the internet. It consists of everything to make communication easy for people all around the world. Recently, I discovered The Bildbord app that has changed how social media operates. The digital world is growing every passing day and the Bildbord app lets you add photos, websites, your business, e-commerce, music playlists, shops and a lot more. This is not like an ordinary social media site. Bildbord is a lot more.

You can add hashtags of ethnicity, religion, your location, your common interests with others and it narrows it down to whom you have similar interests with. Bildbord has allowed us to be who we are, how we can be located, and to match ourselves with others.

There are sites out there that restrain you from chatting and communicating with others, Bildbord allows you to chat with others with no limitations and you can interact 24/7/365. Whenever it is convenient for you.

On the Bildbord website, there is a quote that is incredible and it says,

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”
– C.S. Lewis

That there says it all. Creating friendships based on interests and personality traits is a whole new approach to social media and how we can make friends instantly. Easily send messages to each other and enjoy making new friends. Besides we all want to connect with others and that is what social media is ultimately about, so Bildbord takes that to an all new level. Discover and represent.

Create your very own face verified profile photo and never be bombarded or tricked by fake online profiles ever again. Add your photos, gifs, and add links of your business and personal websites to gain more exposure. Get creative, and enjoy yourself. Life is about enjoying and being ourselves.

The Creators of the app are Daniel Goddard and Bryton James. Daniel is a former actor of the Soap The Young and the Restless who played Cane Ashby and Bryton is currently on the soap as Devon Hamilton. They came together to create this new project and its such a great thought and idea. It is such an awesome site that offers so much for us. Daniel and Bryton are such awesome people. I wish them success and all the best in this project.

The News Media Deliverance – We Want The Truth

In our lives now with constant information being transmitted through our televisions, tablets, cell phones, radio, internet, social media and news sources; we are often caught up on the news as it happens from news media sources. Now, how do we know that we are getting the real truth? Some speculate and suspect that when major news stories hit the headlines of newspapers, and online articles, we think that the news media and parts of social media are hiding the real truth.

These TV, radio, internet stations, editors, writers and how news is conducted and presented to us viewers and listeners is very important. Delivering news no matter how false or how true it is, sometimes we can never know the real deal. Who do we trust? How do we put faith in our news media? How are reporters, anchors and those obtaining information are truly understanding and how are they working on gathering material to present to us? We put our trust in these news stations to give us the truth and wholesome communication.

Sometimes, the bottom line is that these people are being paid to deliver news to us and even though some of them know it is wrong, they have to keep up their job status to prevent themselves from getting fired, so they have to follow the rules and do what they are told to do.

We have seen Anchorman, we have seen Mr. Deeds film and other movies and shows that describe what it takes to be reporters and anchors and it is a big responsibility as the public counts on them to deliver with quality. I think these news media publications need to be more truthful, tell a news as it is and not sugarcoat and hide any secrets as the truth always comes out. Actually, some news stations have been called out because of inaccuracy in news and that builds tension and no trust.

That is why a lot of people opt out of listening to the news and don’t tune in much anymore as the bad seems to dominate more than good news. Now, a lot of people get news from their newsfeeds in social media. We also have to be very careful of the news source. A lot of sites now are full of satire material.

we must learn not to fall for all news and really focus on what and whom we are listening to. Especially nowadays with the COVID19 pandemic, all this chaos we are going through. We need to always hear the truth, and we need to be kept in the loop too. Everything needs to get out in the open. Our lives depend on it and our families, friends and how we need to move forward. We need to be able to see our loved ones again, make memories and more.

When we tell the truth to people, they will appreciate it more because that prepares them for what they need to do. When kids and teens commit crimes, the news must include their names and tell us the truth of who they are, when weather, and other news happens, the news media needs to stop making it so dramatic and by editing a lot of detail and leaving very important aspects of the news out.

We need truth in advertising, in our lives and in our world. Lying to general public will make matters worse. I know it has been like this for a long while, but I wish it wasn’t. We have the ability to change all this, we have the ability to make responsible and good decisions. No matter what deliverance is very important. Lets put trust back into media again, lets put our faith in what we watch.

Quality needs to make a comeback and it is lacking due to mismanagement and lack of communication.

In the comments below, please write your concerns about media. what changes do you want to see? What is your opinion on what media should be? Have you lost trust in what you listen to? Why is news  important to you? would love to hear from you.

 

 

Having Writers Block is Not Fun

Hello Everyone, in the last month or so, I haven’t had much to write about. I guess because of writers block. I am sure it happens to most of us writers out there. Sometimes our thought process doesn’t produce content and topics to write about. Now with COVID19, the whole pandemic, it is pretty hard to focus with everything going on.

I am just thinking about the whole process, unpredictability, What the future holds for our families, friends, and when we will get back to our daily routine, when we can travel again, to find inspiration, new things to discuss and so much more. I have had writers block before, but not to this extent. It is not a fun thing to go through.

I guess we are longing for entertainment in this quarantine life we are living. In spite of it all, It has been a positive experience for me because it brought back time for me to do projects, more family time, to interact and communicate on social media with family, friends and fans from around the world. It has been an uplifting experience, however I also need to make time for writing too as that is one of my greatest passions in life.

I hope you are staying safe and healthy and practicing social distancing. Hopefully this pandemic will be over with soon so we can reunite, make memories and share our moments with our loved ones together again.

Star Wars – The Mandalorian & The Child – The Dream I Had

Baby Yoda came into my dreams a few times and one of them was this story that happened.
From Talin Orfali Ghazarian

Please do not mind the spelling errors of some words. We fans made up this kind of language of baby toddler talk. I find it to be quite adorable and fun.

In My dream, I was in a Star Wars Mandalorian episode and I came into town and then we ventured off to a mission and then we ended up in a field full of stormtroopers, and Mando and I were protecting Baby Yoda, The Child, and there were hundreds of Storm Troopers, so We used light sabers, and other ammunition and also Baby Yoda did the force choke on them and we killed them all in under 5 minutes. No Storm Trooper dare to touch our baby. We protec the child and the child protec us. Then there was a sea of stormtroopers bodies, so we took some of their weapons and put them into our pod.

After our mission was accomplished, we saw a McDonald’s on the way back to our base, and Baby Yoda saw the big Yellow M. He wanted to stop. So we stopped and we ordered McDonald’s and he ordered Chicky Nuggies, Fwies, Choccy Milk, got his Fwoggy toy. Then mando got him a choccy fudgy sundae. after he ate, he wanted to go play in the playground in the restaurant, so we let him go play on the slidie slide and carefully watching him of course. We were eating our McDonalds Biggie Maccie combos

Baby made new friends in the playground and they were enjoying his cuteness. After about half an hour, Mando and I told Baby we gotta go home. You can play with your new fwoggy toy at home. We went home. Then Mando surprised Baby Yoda with choccy chippy cookies, his very own gear ball, and a nicely built roomy room for him and his toys, clothesie clothes and fun lightsabers and more, and went to sleepy sleep while Mando and I looked on and saw how cute and adorable he is.

Then I woke up. Imagine if this happened in an episode? They should incorporate things like this to the character of Baby Yoda, The Child.

Backstabbers and Betrayel – Important Life Lessons to Learn

Betrayal and backstabbing are one of the worst feelings ever. At times like this, you know who your true friends are and you know who genuinely cares for you. Everything happens for a reason. Don’t let other people’s jealousy and intimidation get to you. Life is too short to worry about those who start trouble out of nowhere. Be who you are, do what you love to enjoy, and don’t mind people who just want to be raining on your parade and happy moments.

People can be friendly, be happy for you and say good things to you in your face, but then deep down inside, they are plotting to take you down, and talk behind your back to others and create a group like a clique and put you under the bus. When people are jealous and intimidated, they will do anything and everything to betray you and backstab at any cost even if it means friendships lost.

Those people who start trouble also are people who come across as so thoughtful and helpful. Everyone will believe they are good people, they will buy gifts and give out kind gestures for people to butter them up and one day if the person has a fallout with another person, they will use all that against them saying oh, I helped you out, I was there for you and then the cycle of trouble start once again. Some people always have strings attached to whatever they do. It is very rare to find genuine people these days with no strings attached. Trust is very rare these days. Find friends who will genuinely do something and no expect anything. People who appreciate you and stick by you through thick and thin will never act this way.

Because when people are unhappy, negative, miserable, and are having trouble with whatever circumstances they face in life, they want to bring everyone else down with them. It’s important to give them the love and support they need too but don’t allow anyone to bring you down in the process and put you on the spot. These people will also twist and put words in your mouth and assume things about you that are not true.

Everybody in this life makes mistakes and nobody is perfect. To some people you cannot make mistakes, you cannot have weaknesses and flaws in their eyes. They will use it against you, make a federal case about it and go on and on and for utter stupidity, and for no reason at all, then behind your back, they have a group that will talk behind your back and plots something terrible like bullying. You never do that to your friends. It is ridiculous and absolutely mean.

Making assumptions about a person’s life and making up stories is something that is a red flag. Sometimes things need to happen in life that protects us from people like that. certain situations need to surface so that you can see someone for their true colors. Betrayal is the worst and you will know when that happens.

Some people destroy life-long friendships and companionship, people will ruin a good thing by ganging up on you all because of jealousy.

Karma is something I believe in and what goes around comes around. Lessons will be given out to those people who are backstabbers and those who betray. Not today, not tomorrow, but someday when they least expect it. Don’t worry about a thing. Let God and let nature take its course. In the meantime, sit back, relax, and wait for the show to happen while you go on with your life.

Live your life on your own terms. You owe nobody an explanation of what you do, where you travel to, how you want to conduct your life. Everyone’s lifestyle, situation, and expectations are different. Do not discriminate against that.

Be grateful for the true friends that stick by you without strings attached, that accept you for you, and who don’t use anything against you. Those people who stick by you will always support, love, and appreciate you.

Those who betray and backstab and talk behind your back are behind you for a reason. Don’t give them the satisfaction of belittling you and giving you these terrible vibes. Move on with your life. Time is too precious to waste on nonsense. It is their problem. Not yours. Live life to the fullest, enjoy it, and don’t worry, be happy.

Our Love for Baby Yoda – The Child – Star Wars – The Mandalorian

Our Love for Baby Yoda – The Child – Star Wars – The Mandalorian
Talin Orfali Ghazarian

In life, we all have different interests, and a lot of us in the world share the same love and passion for something or someone we love. In the past year or so or more, we have learned about the cutie pie and adorable character named The Child Also known as Baby Yoda from Star Wars the Mandalorian on Disney+. We thank Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni for creating him. The voice and sounds of the child were created by sound editors named Matthew Wood and David Acord. It cost 5 million dollars to create him.

Our Baby Yoda has definitely stolen our hearts and endless fun with our child. In the last little while, people have been preordering 11-inch basic plush, talking baby Yoda, puzzles, build a bear plush, funko pop, Topps trading cards, mugs, t-shirts, stickers, decals, party favors, plates, coloring books, a lifesize The Child and amongst other merchandise of our beloved character whom we treat as a real-life baby.

Some people have been going to great lengths to buy car seats, baby clothing, pretending to give him baby and toddler food, interacting with others on Facebook groups, sharing our love, photos and the joy we are getting by our child and treating him like he has now become part of our families, and we have even come up with our own baby, toddler language. Some examples:

Chicky Nuggies – Chicken Nuggets
Choccy Milk or Moo Moo Juice – Chocolate Milk
Fwogs – Frogs
Fwies – Fries
Cuppy Cup – Cup
Blankie – Blanket
Mando Dadda – Mandalorian Daddy
This is the way.
etc…

It is evident that some people who have been depressed, going through stressful times, and who have been going through personal issues in life, also now with the pandemic of COVID19, the happiness, joy, love, laughter, good times people are having. Seeing the smiles of people who receive their babies and become daddalorians and mommalorians of The Child is something that is so incredibly awesome to see. I love to see people smiling and being happy with someone like Baby Yoda. That is very important to me.

Yes, I call him someone as he is for us all who enjoy and love him. This is a great obsession we have and it has been amazing.

I have seen pictures and videos of people bringing him home like he is a newborn. Some people have gotten lucky by getting the 11-inch plush and already enjoying him. Some stores such as Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Target, and other stores in the US already have him in stock, while some people ordered him online and still waiting for their precious baby to come home to them. While some are impatient for him but with the pandemic going on, shipments have been delayed, but hopefully everyone who wants one will get one to enjoy him. Some parts of the world do not have a lot of merchandise yet like Canada and other areas, but it will all happen in due time.

My passion for this cute, adorable, and precious character began months ago as I was seeing Memes, articles and social media posts, so my curiosity I decided to search for him and I automatically fell in love with him and became so obsessed. I started to join groups on Facebook and started to really get into it in the last 2-3 months. I began ordering merchandise online and I received quite a bit of it. The happiness and joy it brought me have been out of this world.

I have made many new friends off the groups, and knowing that I can share this awesome interest with others is so awesome. It definitely makes me happy. I am also being courteous, helpful, and assisting others with helping them to find merchandise online, and sharing cute photos, gifs and videos of him. Baby Yoda has definitely won our hearts and he is the cutest in the galaxy and in the world.

For the first time ever out of all the characters created that I have known since I was a kid until now, I have never ever loved and been obsessed with a character more than Baby Yoda, the Child. he is the absolute top for me and he will forever be. In this world and everyone has different interests, different hobbies and it is so awesome to be part of it. There is just so much more to learn about him which we will get to know him more as the seasons of The Mandalorian come out.

As soon as we lay our eyes on our beautiful child, we squeal, scream with happiness, and bring out our inner child no matter how old we are, Baby Yoda, The Child has brought back the child in us and made us forever young.

Here is one of the many many adorable photos of our baby. Enjoy his cuteness and take it all in.

Talin’s Signature Rice with Orzo Noodles

Talin’s Signature Rice with Orzo Noodles

serves 4-6 people

I love to cook rice a lot. I find it is so healthy. I know the experts say it is filled with carbs, but there are health benefits to eating rice. It has nutrients and I think they are good carbs. We can’t let go of carbs entirely from our diet. We need balance and if we get rid of something entirely, it is not good. I pay very good attention to detail and taste when it comes to cooking. Rice with Orzo Noodles is something that I have been doing for so many years, so I decided to share my recipe with you all. My family and friends love my rice and they enjoy it so much they always get seconds.

The secret to making good rice is to never let it get sticky, mushy, and way well done. Sticky rice is meant for sushi, basmati rice is good too, but the best rice I find is parboiled. The texture is amazing. The key to cooking rice is to make it al dente just like pasta. Never overcook the rice. When you are cooking rice, always keep your eye on it. So important. Also to keep in mind, make sure the head is always on medium. Never cook rice in a low heat setting.

Remember, you can always tweak the numbers of servings with the number of people you can cook for. Rice is something that goes well with a lot of meals, especially if you make meals like chicken with sauces, roast, Stir fry, and all other kinds of food. Well, here is the recipe. Enjoy 🙂

Ingredients:

5 tbsp of vegetable oil or 3 tbsp of unsalted butter. your choice.
2 cups rice – parboiled
5 and a half cups of warm water
2 chicken bouillon cubes – to add flavor. no need to add additional salt.
half to 3/4 quarter cup of orzo noodles

How to prepare:

1 – put the unwashed parboiled rice in a strainer with thin holes so the rice does not go through

2 – wash 4-5 times with cold water – until water is crystal clear

3 – put 5 and a half cups of lukewarm water in a separate bowl and set that ready to go.

4 – use vegetable oil or butter and add in the orzo noodles beginning with high heat in the pot and then lower it to medium heat and until it becomes golden brown or lightly browned.

5 – Add the warm water into the orzo and put it back to high heat and let the water boil really well.

6 – add the chicken bouillon cubes into the water until they dissolve.

7 – after the cubes have dissolved. time to add in the rice – I have learned that it cuts the cooking time in half when you preboil the water before adding in the rice.

8 – bring the rice to a boil and then cook it covered by leaving a little air so the steam releases.

9 – every 4-5 minutes open the lid, mix the rice.

10 – the rice should be done in 15 minutes with the water dissolved.

11 – let it rest for about 2-5 minutes before serving or you can serve right away which is what I prefer. The texture of the rice will be just right.

12 – enjoy 🙂

 

 

Never Allow Someone’s Miserable Behavior to Rain on you

This quote is so absolutely true.
 
I can relate to this so much. Another issue is when people start problems out of nowhere then pin it on you, walk all over you, and then they run a squad to gang up on you and then talk crap behind your back, and then they have people acting like surveillance cameras to watch your every move.
 
I have no time and energy for bs from other people. They start problems out of jealousy and intimidation and they can’t handle it because of whatever insecure and miserable thing is going on in their lives so they have to hurt and gang up on another person for stupidity to feel superior, mighty and who think they are all that and to make someone miserable too. Some people can’t handle it.
 
God protected me from these people and he led me to the right path where I can be surrounded by people who genuinely love and care about me for me, who I can be myself around with and who don’t start issues out of nowhere. 
 
I believe in kindness, respect, and being happy for people of what they do, where they go, and how they want to live life. You owe nobody an explanation of what you do on your terms in your lifestyle. Who am I to judge other people? Everyone’s circumstances in their lives differ from yours. Never ever let anyone walk all over you. stand your ground and get away from people who belittle you.
 

 

Armenians in the Diaspora – Keeping The Armenian Legacy Alive

Armenians in the Diaspora – Keeping The Armenian Legacy Alive
Written By: Talin Orfali Ghazarian – Canada

In life, we come to this world with different identities and backgrounds, and every culture, belief, race, religion, and heritage is important and special in many ways and to especially acknowledge, respect, and preserve. It is very important to appreciate and not take who we are for granted no matter who we are.

As a Canadian born Armenian in the diaspora outside of my motherland Armenia, it is important to me to preserve my heritage and culture to always keep learning about my country, to always be updated with current events and news happening around the world.  The diaspora of Armenians is largely populated around the earth more than Armenia itself. We come from all continents of the world.

I had the pleasure of visiting Armenia and catching up with reality on everything I have learned in my life and actually seeing it in person. It is so fulfilling and it means so much to me having been able to have that opportunity to see my culture up close and personal.

I was really emotional with happy tears. I cannot wait to go back and hopefully soon.

Armenia is located between Europe and Asia, but are located in Asia, and we are bordered with Iran, Georgia, Turkey, and Azerbaijan. The Turkish Ottoman empire massacred 1.5 million Armenians on April 24, 1915, during the Armenian Genocide and where they stole a lot of our land and our sacred Mount Ararat where Noah’s Ark came to its final resting place. Armenian’s in the diaspora and in Armenia are demanding justice to recognize the Armenian Genocide globally and especially Turkey, but they still continue the denial of their crimes.

More than 30 countries around the world have recognized the Armenian Genocide and we are working to never allow history to repeat itself as many countries, cities, states, and towns continue to recognize. It is never too late. Even after 105 years later. We Armenians in the diaspora are always including dignitaries, governmental bodies in municipal and federal governments, and as well as Non-Armenians to inform them of who we are and to educate them about Armenia, the Armenian Genocide, as well as our culture and heritage.

Every year on April 24th, we come together in many communities around the world, marches, conducting peaceful demonstrations, we visit our local embassies and parliaments to gather to voice ourselves for the Armenian Genocide and to pray and stand to remember our ancestors.

Armenia was the first to adopt Christianity since 301 AD and we have the oldest church in the world in Armenia called St. Etchmiadzin which still stands strong and it is so beautiful. our culture is so rich in history, so many beautiful landmarks, churches, statues, cross rocks, and many stories that are endless.

We Armenians have a very strong connection to our culinary cuisine and food. We absolutely love to offer our hospitality with serving Armenian coffee, sweets, food and never letting anybody go hungry. We love to cook, bake for our family and friends and we are very friendly. We pay close attention to detail to make sure we have perfectly tasty food for all to enjoy. In the diaspora, we are always welcoming people to taste our food and they absolutely love it.

As Armenians in the diaspora the same as Armenia, we have built families, friends,  school’s, churches, statues, Armenian Genocide memorials, parks, community centers, clergyman, organizations and committees to gather Armenian’s and to have a welcoming feeling of being at home where Armenian’s can connect, communicate, organize events and parties. When we get together we are a large family and it is amazing how connected we really are.

Social media and the internet have made everything so much easier to connect to Armenians around the world, to make friends, to share everything together, to create online communities, events, and to be one family to interact and share with one another in seconds. I have made many new friends and discovered many Armenian people and I have met some of them in person after communicating online for a while. It is such a great feeling to be physically present and to get to know each other more. It is a special moment.

We have many Armenians around the world who are writers, developers, artists, actors, who work in film, comedians, directors, teachers, principals, singers, dancers, cooks, chefs, bakers, who have the innovative touch, inventing things, realtors, electricians, doctors, lawyers, jewelers, and in every other field of professions to cater to our world.

Challenging aspects we face globally

We Armenians face challenging aspects living out of Armenia as we adapt to society with different cultures, races, backgrounds in our cities and towns around the world. That is why it is important to preserve our identity and to always remember and be proud of who we are. It is important to speak Armenian, to read and write. We go to Armenian schools and are taught at home from a very young age.

Some Armenians do not know how to read and write our alphabet which has 38 letters, but above all the important aspect to it all is to speak it and never forget it. I face challenges of reading and writing in Armenian when it comes to different writing patterns  and I have trouble usually with the bigger words, but that is not stopping me from speaking and to keep it alive and vibrant and writing about it.

St. Mesrob Mashtotz was our Armenian Alphabet inventor. He was the chosen one to give us these beautiful and rich letters where we can write stories, songs, scripture, church hymns, and prayers. We have different words we use for everything. There are so many thousands and thousands of words and it is incredible and beautiful on how it all sounds.

As we face those challenges, we also appreciate and love who we are and are so proud. There is just so much to learn about Armenia and it is a place worth visiting, discovering, and educating yourself about.

We in the diaspora are so dedicated, devoted, motivated with so much passion, awareness, love with showing patriotism, showing and waving our Armenia flags proudly, and working hard to ultimately preserve who we are when we cannot be in Armenia physically. I love you Armenia and Armenians around the world. God bless us all.

The 105th Armenian Genocide Virtual Commemoration Take Place around the World

On Friday April 24, 2020 marked 105 years since the Armenian Genocide of April 24, 1915. 1.5 Million Armenians were massacred by the hands of the Turkish Ottoman Empire and also they stole a lot of our precious land and our Mount Ararat. They still deny and lie about committing those crimes perpetrated by them. A lot of raw emotions and tears were felt.

This year our commemorations were a lot different then other years. We commemorated, remembered and got together virtually online in social media, going live with videos, sharing photos, and previous years of commemorations, peaceful demonstrations, and gatherings. Armenian Churches, Organizations, Armenian People were sharing from their homes.

The reason for us going online this year is due to the obvious of the whole COVID19 virus Pandemic, physical and social distancing protocols which prevented us from gathering in large crowds and beside each other for our health and safety.

I am sure The Turkish Government around the world found it to be a sign of relief and joy that we were not together physically around the world in large crowds in front of embassies, memorials in dedication to the Armenian Genocide, however, that did not stop us from gathering virtually and spiritually, so basically we came out once again.

We will never stop remembering the victims of Genocide no matter how we voice ourselves and those who survived in the aftermath. Recognizing, spreading awareness and acknowledgement is key to prevent from history from ever repeating itself.

Hopefully and God willingly as COVID19 passes quickly out of the world and in 2021, on the  106th year we will get together again physically to share our emotions, grief and stand strong together. In Memory of the Armenian Genocide. We will never forget.

COVID19 – Masks and Gloves Being Thrown on The Ground – Littering our World

Recently with the COVID19 Coronavirus outbreak, people have been going to grocery stores and other essential places to buy necessities and essentials and then going home protecting themselves with Masks and gloves to try to prevent themselves from getting the coronavirus COVID19.  There are people who are really disgusting and who litter and little do they know what they are doing is causing the problem to be worse. It is creating a huge problem for our world and in our backyards.

It is so disgusting. To those who throw their gloves and masks at the parking lot’s at grocery stores and other essential stores leave them in the carts. Stop littering and stop being so irresponsible and throw them in something invented called the garbage bin. They are there for a reason. Just some people do not understand the concept of what the Garbage bin is used for.

I have seen hundreds and maybe thousands of gloves and masks on the ground and it is absolutely horrible, inhumane, and so crazy. Here we are trying to prevent ourselves from getting sick and boom, there are these people who are doing just the opposite.

People are so focused on social and physical distancing and yet some just throw them on the ground and leave them in carts with whatever is on those gloves and masks being spread around.

I even saw them flying around and that causes a bad environmental disaster as well causing harm and danger for them to get into waters and streams where fish and other animals live and other places too. People have no idea what hazards and havoc this causes and ultimately we pay the price at the end with more people and animals getting infected with this horrible virus. It is unbelievable. There need to be strict penalties to enforce on these people who litter and there should be security and police monitoring parking lots and other places to catch these people who litter.

it is a very disgusting thing. I will call people out on that if I do see it happen and I will make sure they throw it in the garbage disposal. I will definitely be keeping my eye out next time I do groceries. This is crazy and people need to be educated. I cannot believe that we have to teach people how to throw things in the garbage and I cannot believe we have to tell people to do this and where they can’t think of it with common sense by themselves and people have to tell them. That shouldn’t be. It should be automatic and a lightbulb going on in someone’s head. It is ridiculous.

We need to help each other and our world to flatten this curve and with littering, it is not helping at all.

People just don’t get it and don’t understand. More needs to be done to stop these people.

1.5 Million Armenians Massacred by the Turkish Ottoman Empire.

By: Talin Orfali Ghazarian – CANADA

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada is Canada’s Capital and every year for a few decades now, we embark on a journey with buses and automobiles to the Parliament Hill for a peaceful demonstration to meet with government dignitaries, Armenians across cities and towns from Ontario, Quebec and Other areas plus our Non-Armenian supporters who have recognized and acknowledged The Armenian Genocide, then immediately after the Parliament, we conduct a march to the Turkish Embassy to also conduct a civil demonstration. Canada has recognized the Armenian Genocide and the purpose of us gathering at the Parliament hill is to say thank you to the Canadian Government for recognizing.

However, this year in 2020 is a lot different and due to unfortunate circumstances due to the COVID19 outbreak, we will be doing things a lot differently. Just because we are not gathering in large numbers together, does not mean that we have forgotten and it does not mean that we will not remember. This year, we will be live streaming online and commemorating through social media outlets, posting articles, hashtags, videos, and pictures to participate. We will definitely make sure that we voice ourselves.

1.5 million Armenians were displaced from their homes, sent to the desert without food and water, were left hungry, tired, slaughtered and massacred by the hands of the Turkish Ottoman Empire of Turkey, and also we had our lands were stolen and our Mount Ararat where it was the final resting place of  Noah’s Ark. To this day, Turks still deny and lie about ever committing those terrible crimes.  There are several websites and literature about The Armenian Genocide online. 

Many countries around the world have recognized the Armenian Genocide and we thank and appreciate you. Let’s prevent that history does not repeat itself. 

Acknowledge, Recognize, Awareness. 

 

Celebrities Complaining About Being Isolated & Quarantined During COVID19

RANT from me:
Warning.
I am so pissed off right now!

Some celebrities are complaining that they are stuck in their homes during the COVID19 pandemic and some say that they are bored in their villas/mansions. Sorry but you are complaining about being stuck in your 6,000 to 20,000 sq feet or more mansions when you have swimming pools, hot tubs, ample space to move around to do things, movie theatres, workout rooms, game rooms, massive walk-in closets, pool tables, super expensive cars, super expensive clothing and so much more. I don’t feel for any of you at all. Try and be in people’s shoes right now and your complaining!

There are alone people in this world who are isolated, there are people who are suffering, there are homeless people out there, there are people who live paycheck to paycheck and some who are struggling to make ends meet, some people who have lost their jobs and got laid off due to this pandemic, there are people who can’t pay their bills, there are people who can’t be with their family and friends who are in hospital and YET celebrities have the audacity to complain while they are in the millions of dollars worth of mansions?

While front line workers, nurses, doctors that are pouring in their sweat, tears, exhaustion to help patients with COVID19 who are trying to save their lives, security guards, grocery workers, parents, fast food places, restaurant staff, delivery people, transit workers, pharmacists, truck drivers, post/mail servers, teachers and other essential workers out there who are busting their asses off working so hard to help YOU, who are working so hard to make sure you have food at home.

Kids who can’t go to school now, who were looking forward to seeing their friends, who were supposed to graduate, teens who are supposed to have their proms, graduation valedictorian speeches, and all these special pivotal moments, people who are supposed to have weddings, engagement parties, birthday parties, baby and bridal showers, milestone birthdays, holiday gatherings, travel plans, business trips, cruises, and all kinds of events that are canceled, and

yet Celebrities are complaining that they are bored and feel so isolated and cooped up in their HUGE ASS MANSIONS, GET OVER YOURSELVES!

Appreciate what you have, be grateful and be thankful. There are people who are dying every day from this pandemic and who are deeply suffering, there are other people who are dying from various diseases and illnesses around the world too. While you’re in your MANSIONS, there are people taking in their last breath. SO UNBELIEVABLE!

Rant Over.
