"I join the Armenian-American community here in Los Angeles and around the world in affirming this long overdue recognition of the Armenian Genocide by the U.S. Senate. The Genocide decimated the Armenian people and emboldened Hitler, who later would ask, 'Who, after all, speaks of the annihilation of the Armenians?' For far too long, our leaders have failed to answer that haunting challenge by refusing to speak the truth. Ideally today's Senate's action will spur the White House to follow suit. Our children are watching."
