After a long, depressing, freezing cold winter, I am excited, anticipating, anxious and thrilled about more daylight. I Can’t wait to hear the birds to start coming out and chirp, when the sun comes out early in the morning and sets after 9pm, the beautiful flowers start blooming, the trees become green once again, the warmth in the air, the beautiful colours of spring and summer. With Spring just around the corner, I feel so good with that transition from a long harsh winter. I love to wear lighter colour clothing, and just enjoying the beauty of this season and more. Just to enjoy life, stopping to smell the roses, and just enjoy the beauty of a vibrant season.
I want to take up walking and go to the malls a lot more, visiting friends and family a lot more, being outdoors all day, finding activities to do, probably go camping and enjoying nature.
I have many plans for the spring and summer months. I have already ironed out some of the places I want to go as well as of course hanging out with my family, friends and just going out and getting fresh air that we really do need. We are so cooped up indoors from all the freezing weather, and snow we endured since Beginning of November and now that we are approaching half way into March, I am excited to be opening up windows, and breathing outdoor air. It feels incredible. I do not plan to stay home and try to go out and do a lot of things.
I absolutely love giving water to the flowers, washing the cars from all the snow, salt and winter debris that is left on it, as well as washing down all the salt left on the car mats and so much more. I am jumping for joy. I have never liked winter and I never will. That is how excited I am.
What do you like about transitioning to spring and warmer temperatures? Have you planned your days yet? What do you enjoy most about it all?
Bring on the daylight savings time and lets spring forward shall we?
***Remember to turn your clocks forward 1 hour March 8, 2015 at 2am in the morning, so before you go to sleep to change the clocks***
Have a wonderful season and best wishes.
The 99th Anniversary on the Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide is quickly approaching next month on April 24th, 2014. To Canadian-Armenian community and more, Lets make our attendance in Ottawa, Ontario Canada in front of the Parliament Hill, The March to The Turkish Embassy a successful one with thousands of people, Lets crowd and fill the park by the Turkish Embassy, lets make the march there a huge one. Lets stand tall, voice ourselves even louder.
We need to get out there in the public eye and raise awareness about the Armenian Genocide. Not just getting together in Armenian Community Centres to commemorate, but must take a stand outside Like of course Ottawa, Queens Park, and in front of the Media eyes, gain as much Television, Social Media Awareness, get these news casters to the scene, get us on Television, and make us well known. That is how we are going to let people know what happened. We have many Armenians in Media. Lets get this Rolling…. I have never seen our Ottawa commemorations air on our TV’s and Broadcasting Corporation Channels. Something must be done about that.
The Turkish Ottoman Empire Killed 1.5 Million Armenians, and tried to wipe us all off from the Earth on April 24, 1915, but could not succeed. They also stole our lands and our Mountain Ararat – Also Known as Mount Ararat.
Please make prior arrangements from now to attend the commemoration. It is important and something we all should participate in and do our best. Lets help each other and join each others hands and lets go to OTTAWA, CANADA. Canada’s Capital….
Please see your local Cambridge, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Laval and other Armenian communities to gain more information on Buses, and times, so on and so forth. Lets make this year a big number in attendance. We can do this.
For the past 17 years in a row, I have attended the Armenian Genocide Commemoration Protests in Canada’s Capital Ottawa, but this year I could not attend due to personal reasons that I missed out this year, however throughout the day I had friends update me on what is happening in Ottawa for the April 24, 1915 Armenian Genocide Commemoration March from Parliament Hill then Marching to the Turkish Embassy to keep me in the loop.
Little did I know that in the history of My Attendance in Ottawa for the Armenian Genocide March went into a total new twist and for the first time ever Turkish people that showed up at their Embassy celebrating the Armenian Genocide by killing 1.5 Million Armenians By raping, hanging, and doing so many terrible things to Armenians, evicting them out of their homes, making them walk in the dessert when they got tired, the Turks beat the Armenians down, Killing them, Our Lands stolen, Mount Ararat stolen from us. I cannot believe that this year I was not there and this happens. It is so crazy, stupid and ridiculous.
The Turkish protestors did not have a legal permit to protest on the day where we usually go protest in front of the Turkish Embassy for them to stop lying and admitting the truth to Armenians and the world, and they Lied to the permit givers that it was going to be a Turkish Celebration Barbecue party, which appalled me so much and I was at a loss of words of what was happening in Ottawa. They were flashing their Turkish flags, dancing, waving, singing. This is all the evidence and proof that the world needs to say enough is enough.
Some countries have recognized the Armenian Genocide including Canada, President Obama had promised us before his first term campaign that he would recognize the Armenian Genocide and that it really did happen and I think the White House and Mr. President Obama should watch this video that I am about to post that this should be proof, evidence enough to see how disgusting they are and how terrible they are for celebrating Genocide. It is about time that the rest of the world see this video to recognize what has happened.
How can people celebrate killings? How can people celebrate a Genocide that tried to wipe out a whole race and tried to finish people? How can people be so horrid and cruel? Such a shame!
98 years have gone, but the wounds are still fresh, the murders and all these terrible things that Armenians had to endure in the past have certainly put a big scar and it is felt by Armenians across the world and Armenian Supporters. Thank goodness somebody posted a video of Cowardice behavior of the Turks to show to the world on how these people are. I cannot believe how cowardly they are, and how inhumane, bullies, disgusting, disgraceful, distasteful these people can be. They are being taught lies that Turkish people did not commit the Armenian Genocide Crime, but they definitely did. Enclosed is a video of these cowards in Ottawa, Ontario Canada on April 24, 2013.
So terrible. Next year I definitely will be attending for the 99th Anniversary.
Hello! Wow, Can you believe that May is here already? We are already in the 5th month of the year. Time is just flying by so quickly. As my birthday was yesterday On April 30th, and waking up to a new month, I can sure feel the difference every year. Yesterday on my birthday, I had such a fabulous day, so many people from my facebook wished me a happy birthday, calls, text messages, e-mails, comments and so much more. During my 27th year, I have new goals, aspirations, and plans and one of them is finding that special someone in my life to settle down with, to get married, and have a future with who I can trust in and who share similar interests as me. Also I believe in my 27th year I will find employment and I will get my life back on track with that. I just have so many plans to make and I start doing so today. Time is of the essence.
Thanks again to those who wished me a happy birthday!
I have already written this in a previous blog, but today I am taking a break in writing as I am going to be in Ottawa, Ontario Canada Demonstrating at the Parliament Hill by 12noon and Then Marching to the Turkish Embassy on wurtemburg street or something like that. Thank you.
For Several years now, People from All over the place such as Montreal, Toronto, Laval, Cambridge, Ontario, From other provinces and countries take a trip every year on April 24th to participate and take part in the demonstration of The Armenian Genocide Commemoration and to raise awareness about other Genocides on how history should not be repeated. This year marks the 97th anniversary since the Armenian Genocide happened in 1915. In April we hold many commemorations, remembrance, vigils, and programs to honor the Armenian Genocide Victims of which 1.5 Million Armenians were massacred by The Ottoman Empire of Turkey and of which they stole our lands, churches, cities, and as well as MOUNT ARARAT which belongs to Armenia and they stole it from us and they tried to wipe out a whole nation and its people but could not succeed. The Armenian Genocide is a constant struggle for us and now in less than 20 days we will be embarking on a journey to Ottawa, Ontario Canada on April 24th, 2012, to commemorate once again.
In Ottawa, we get together at the Parliament Hill in between the West and East Blocks right in front of the Parliament building. This year we will be meeting at 12 noon and the procession will begin with speeches from dignitaries, politicians, Armenians, Fellow guests, Parish priests, and more. Then after the speeches and thanking Canada for Recognizing the Armenian Genocide, we gather up with our Genocide Prevention signs, Armenian, Canadian, Quebec, Province Flags, Banners and everything then we start to march down to the Turkish Embassy not so far away and we protest and raise our voices to the passerby’s on the street and we say, No More Genocide, Eastern Turkey is Western Armenia, Denial Is A Crime, Admit Your Crimes Turkey, all the way until we reach the Turkish Embassy. Now there is a Park right in front of the Turkish Embassy and thousands of Armenians and Armenian supporters are there to protest and to talk to the Ambassador of Turkey to recognize their crimes, and to admit what they have done to us. It will be my 17 year in a row attending and I have never missed a commemoration of all those years. I started going when I was 10 years old and it never stops there. Its very important to me that I am there with my fellow Armenians and to raise my voice and voice my opinions on Genocide.
If You are in the Ottawa, Canada area or close to it, in the vicinity, please come out and join our demonstration and protest. If you would like to meet with me, I will be there. I will not be that hard to find. I’ll post a couple of recent pictures of myself.
Well, Hello April! I cannot believe how time is flying by so quickly. This month will be a jam packed one for me as Easter Celebrations are just around the corner, as I will be super busy going to church and being with family and friends. I am looking forward to a couple of trips I will take this month. I also will be traveling to Ottawa, Canada, Canada’s Capital and every year on April 24th, We embark on a journey from Parts of Ontario and Quebec and other places and we commemorate the Armenian Genocide at the Parliament Hill at noon then we head to the Turkish Embassy to commemorate the Armenian Genocide of what the Turkish Ottoman Empire committed those crimes against humanity and killed 1.5 Million Armenians. This month will be a bittersweet month with the good and the bad, but this month will be my birthday but not until the end of this Month on the 30th. I have so much to do this month, but not enough hours in the day to do it all in. Well, today is Palm Sunday and its a time where I will go to church to be with my family, seeing friends and people I haven’t seen in a while. I need to make an effort to attend church a lot more often. I do attend bible studies every Thursday nights, but that is not enough. I am going to make the extra effort to attend church on Sundays and that will start again this month. I used to go all the time, but it will start again. I want to bond with God again and I want to go into God’s house more. Today is also April Fools day. When I was in school, I remember we used to do so many things to fool and trick people, but now for several years, I just don’t do it anymore. I should, its fun lol but since its Palm Sunday, I don’t feel it is appropriate. I believe for me going to church is far more important than tricking somebody or some people. Well, here is to April! See you tomorrow!
