  1. I found this on ArmenianGenocide.Com, and thought that it was really important to share - ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE AN ARMENIAN IN CALIFORNIA. Also, please forward this to everyone on your email list, whether you're Armenian or not. Kharpert wrote this on the forums: If you are an Armenian living in California, you should make two phone calls this week! If we get enough calls in, we will stop the approval of a known Genocide-denier as America's representative in Yerevan. Call Senator Boxer's office at (202) 224-3553 as well as Senator Feinstein's office (202) 224-3841 and simply ask their foreign policy assistants to make sure they take the LEAD in blocking the nomination of Richard Hoagland as the next U.S. Ambassador to Armenia. Call right now - and then pass this message along to your family and friends. Please make calls too whether you're Armenian or not. For more info, click here.
  2. But on the profile editing thing, it lists Gender. Obviously, I put that in as Female. But on the Sex part, it says to put in Male/Female. From my understanding, is that asking which way you "swing"? Or am I way off-base? :lol: Edit: Wait, I just noticed it asks for gender twice. Why, that's strange... why does it do that?
  3. Well, I made a post on here about myself, but 'ere goes nothing! My name, as my username says, is Flora Korkis. I am the president of a nation-to-nation and local violence awareness group called Aftermath. I'm a 17-year-old highschool student of Armenian/Arabic background, and yes, a bit Turkish. It's an odd combo :lol: Hmmm..... my interests are (man this is going to sound like some dating service shit right here :lol: ) political science, parapsychology, fashion, history of all sorts; North American (especially Native), African, Asian (mainly Middle Eastern), and Eastern European; religion, biology, evolutionary sciences, music; listening to it, studying it, creating it; MMA (mixed martial arts - I love Karo Parisyan ), Karo Parisyan, Karo Parisyan, and did I say Karo Parisyan? :lol: Haha, so... you basically got the idea of what I'm into on a daily basis. Oh yea, and I'm going to eventually learn Armenian so I can speak to my relatives. Right now, English and Arabic are occupying me. Salam, Flora
  4. Hello! Just thought I'll introduce myself before I present the premise of this post. I'm Flora Korkis, and I'm the president and founder of Aftermath, which is a group that makes people more aware of nation-to-nation and local violence. I'm 17, and Armenian/Arabic. My home is Canada, but my heart is still in Iraq and Armenia. You can understand how I feel, and I can understand how you all feel, about the Turkish government's denial of the massacre that occurred on April 24th, 1915. I know I can't change incredibly much, even with my group (which is not fully established quite yet, but will be within a few weeks), which is where you all come in. If you guys know of any good events, or any good resources (books, movies, any form of media) that may help me out, it would be really appreciated if you guys post them. Although I already have a good amount of resources and an event to go to (Toronto rally in April), it never hurts to have more. Much love, Flora Korkis (Korr-kees, not Korr-kiss!) PS: Also remember that I don't speak Armenian (though I'm working on that!), so please don't give me anything in Armenian
