Christians have been crying out for action in response to the current genocide taking place in the Middle East and Africa for years. Today, I found a video that has moved us one step closer… recognition. In this video, Katie Couric hosts a segment on the story of the millions of Armenians whom some people would like to see erased from history as well. It was 100 years ago when the slaughter of Turkey’s Christian second-class citizens took place. Their crime? Having the courage to defend their faith. This is their story.
