Conan O’Brien Takes Assistant Sona Movsesian to Armenia

Dear Conan O’Brien, Sona Movsesian, Team Coco, and Crew,

I would just like to say thank you to you all for making the trip to my homeland Armenia and for taking Sona Movsesian who had never been to Armenia. That is such an incredible and beautiful gesture that you made for Sona and that flair was definitely felt throughout the Armenian community of the world. Not every boss in the world would do those beautiful and thoughtful things for their friends/workers and that there tells a lot about a person’s character and personality and Conan, I have a tremendous amount of respect for you and your crew, not only because you took Sona to Armenia, but you as a person who demonstrates quality, who is dedicated, and put your employees first. That is a rare occurrence.

You have no idea on how much we Armenians appreciate all that you have done and continue to do. Now, a lot more people know about us and that is something that I/We will forever be grateful for.

It is so awesome on how the #ConanArmenia show was presented to the world. Thank you for adding humor into the show, which made me laugh hysterically. I have watched the episode at least 10 times by now, if not more. I just cannot get enough of it. Sona is a beautiful person who is so full of life and I would love to meet you Conan and Sona someday and tell you in person.

As the show was airing, I was sending out live tweets and explaining to what was going on and I was so excited about it. I must have sent hundreds of #ConanArmenia hashtags throughout the world.

On behalf of all the Armenians in the world including myself, thank you for introducing Armenia our homeland to your viewers and fans, thank you for taking the time to travel thousands of miles to be with Armenians, getting to know and embrace our culture, language, heritage, making Armenian friends, putting us on the map and as well as addressing an important and integral part of our history about The Armenian Genocide, for saying the word Genocide, visiting the Genocide memorial with Sona in the end of the show really put a sweet and touching tribute and for recognizing what had happened to 1.5 Million Armenians who were displaced, massacred in 1915, and for letting people know about it.

When Sona was explaining about her family and what had happened in the village we lost of Sepastia which is now in Turkish lands, really made me all the more emotional as I am sure the Armenian community of the world. I started to cry too with Sona and I felt her feelings about it.

Again, we cannot thank you enough for doing this. We love you Conan, we love you Sona, and may you all have continued success with your show in Los Angeles or wherever life takes you.

Sincerely,

Talin Orfali

Racism Is Wrong – Were All Human!

In this life as I was growing up, I have learned to accept people as they are and accept the colour of their skin  and my parents and a lot of the adults when I was a kid taught me the importance of accepting people of who they are and not the colour of their skin and one of the things I do not like is racism and discrimination towards each other. I believe we all have one body and we all have blood in our veins, we all live in this place called earth, were part of the human race and humanity and that is something very important to me. We all make mistakes, we all have people in our race that make good and bad choices, but we can’t discriminate people because of it. Learn to love each other, learn to accept people as they are. I love learning about different cultures, heritage, beliefs, and visiting and traveling to countries and experiencing culture and the society of each place. I have a lot of friends from all races and beliefs, and its such a nice thing to have conversations with different people in the world and to gain peoples point of view. This is what makes the world go around. When people go around stereotyping, and pointing fingers at each other and making fun of other peoples races, accents, and the way they look. It is not a very nice thing to do and say.

People who discriminate can really hurt someone, and it can really cause a lot of trouble. There are so many racial profiling, there are those really terrible racist words that get said to people, and I will not mention them as I cannot stand racism. Although some may say it doesn’t hurt me, but it really does hurt someone or some people. I have a profound respect for everyone in the world in regards to gender, race, cultural beliefs, orientation and so much more. We all can make a difference in this world and when someone is treating someone with disrespect, and being offensive toward them, it is not a good trait to develop. God made everyone differently and respect everyone. Yes although some races have had problems in history and things have happened where races, cultures and government don’t see eye to eye, but I do believe there are great people out of each race in the world and I do believe the people can live with each other, but when higher authorities get involved things get messy and it is not nice.

I believe in true diversity, equality, love, respect, outreaching, giving a helping hand regardless of anyone’s race. Were all in this together and we live in our communities with different people. Time to stand up to racism and move forward in life and be there for each other. Get up, and Stand up for your rights. Always. Nobody wins in racism and discrimination.

All the best and love each other.

 

 

Not In My Best Mood Today. It Has Been an Emotional Roller Coaster Today

As most of you may have read my previous blog to this one about the Manner less society today, that did hit quite a few peoples nerves. I know I received some comments that were not so pleasant to read, and from that, I have been having a really crummy day. I am not trying to be condescending and ranting about a certain issue, but I felt the need to express it. I see so many manner less people, that it has become unbelievable. If someone does not speak up to talk about it and to write about it? Then who will? I want to see a world of people that will be pleasant to each other, to be nice, to be polite, and respectful to one another and have a world of peace, happiness, positivity and love. If messages like the one I wrote does not get spread around and if etiquette is not taught to people at very young age, people will grow up to be unfriendly and impolite. I mean I did not mean for it to sound harsh which I did not, but I needed to say it. It has been on my mind to write about this topic for quite sometime now and you know its just so hard to bring up topics like this without someone or some people writing distasteful comments back to me.

I know that everybody has their own opinions and everything and you are entitled to have that, and I know that blogging is something that not everyone will agree with what is said and what is written, and sometimes it will hit a huge nerve on someone, but it is all about the blogging journey and not everything will be perfect all the time. I have been in a terrible mood all day and maybe I should not have brought up that subject, but In my heart and in my soul I really had to come out with it. I wrote a blog about not keeping things bottled up inside, and today I am taking my own advice to write about something I should have done a long time ago. I am not here to point fingers at anybody and I am not here to cause grief and trouble, but I believe in freedom of expression and freedom of speech. I want to send out these messages to people, I want to make a better world for us all to live in and to tolerate each other, to be nice, kind and do great things. Life is too short. People need to realize that the world is ours and we need to take care of it and take care of one another and have a great world.

We do live in a great world, but it is our actions that speak louder than words. Today I was very close to not blogging today and keeping today blank, but I didn’t have it in me to stop. I cannot stop. Not now. Blogging is part of my life and and writing on subjects like this is something very important to me. If people don’t speak out about something than who will? You know what I am trying to get at and say? I am talking to everybody in all age groups. I am not just pointing the finger in certain age groups. manner less people come of all ages. I really hope things change. I care too much for people.
