To the Editor:
I wish to publicly thank Senator Berman for having the courage to endorse the Armenian genocide resolution. My father, Shavarsh, would be very proud of him. He was a survivor of the 1915 death marches. He was born in Moush and was the only survivor of 13 brothers, sisters and mother. He was 3 years old when this happened and was saved by a Kurdish family who wept as the Ottoman Turkish army put all the Armenians in a barn and set it ablaze.
He finally came to America when he was 18 years old. He put himself through vocational school in Providence, R.I., where he became a carpenter. His favorite song was "God Bless America."
Again, thank you all for any and all support you can give to the recognition of this grave injustice to man.
