Dave and I had the honor of filming the Armenian Genocide Commemoration on April the 24th, 2015. Many people do not know of this tragedy, mainly because many countries, including the United States of America, have not acknowledged that the genocide took place 100 years ago. Armenians, Darfurians, Ukrainians, Jewish People, and Rwandans came together at Dallas City Hall to send a message of peace, understanding, acknowledgement and forgiveness. Sadly, genocides are not only a part of our worlds past, but they continue to plague us today in the 21st century. We hope and pray that this film helps bring awareness to these on-going atrocities, that the U.S. will take the lead in acknowledging the Armenian Genocide, and that genocides will forever stay horrors of our past.
