Here ends the tragic tale of the
1.5 million Armenian martyrs.
Who fell victim to the first genocide of our century.
We cherish their memories as we pray for their souls.

But we the living dedicate this
testament to all Armenian parents
They who miraculously survived the carnage.
Orphaned in 1915
Yet children with no childhood
Scattered in all corners of the world
How they created a new life
Is beyond the ability of any historian’s account.

That a people, prosecuted, abused, orphaned
Could rise again, must give courage and hope
To all who believe in the forward march
of the human race.
It is proof of what the sturdy Armenian race can do.

Their history has been a record of insurrections and resurrection.
