To chear up our Armenian brothers & sisters from that heated thread, I thought I'd share this very cool (at least to me) video:Armenia: Defenders of Christianity1600 years ago, Armenia dared to defy Persia, the mightiest power in the world. The story of Vartan Mamikonian and the rebels that he lead against Persia's tyranny is one of great selflessness and personal sacrifice in the name of freedom - religious, political, but also personal. Even today, we remember and thank them for their courage an self sacrifice. Because of them, Armenia kept her freedom, faith and cultural identity. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XM_YjgO8xXc
"Let our death be as the death of the righteous, and our spilt blood with the blood of the martyrs. May God be pleased with our offering, and may He give His Church not into the hands of the heathens."
- St. Vartan Mamikonian
