Alexis Ohanian, founder of Reddit, has been vocal about the events that took place a hundred years ago. He is currently in Yerevan participating in the commemorative events taking place on April 24.
Here are some tweets from Alexis Ohanian’s visit.
Every one of us is a living statement that the #armeniangenocide failed to destroy us. I want recognition, but I also know that within each of us is a spirit of all those who sacrificed – our lives are their recognition.“
“Mother Armenia. Visiting her always reminds me of the Saroyan quote “I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.“ #priime”
