And what was going on 8 September, 2015 in Republic Square?
In the inner silence they recall what have they done that wasn't glorifying the Lord, think of the days, when in the hassle of the life they had misbehaved, made mistakes, didn't do what would have been good for everyone, had been selfish, inconsiderate, greedy, and many other things.
Schools, Universities, Collages, all together start their academic year, and Yerevan decorates even more by multiples of pupils and students, talking, walking, discussing their new studies, teachers, friends, and with the colors of flowers, schools bags, held by school kids. The most excited are the first graders. Their eyes are so curious, so happy, so hopeful and open.
Drivers should be careful, children are allover, crossing the streets, engaged in hot discussions of their new classmates, teachers, lessons.
It's not about talking of the topic that harms us Armenians to the deep. It is not about why we Armenians had been spread out away from our home country, working hard to keep the identity, and making our kids speak "Hayeren". It's not about the numbers, and geographic locations of the Armenian Diaspora, and that we are more outside than inside Armenia. Its not about wars, hardships, hungers, killings. It is not about today's economic crisis, strange unemployment and closure of small businesses, which leads to increase of Armenian Diaspora Community. Yes, Diaspora is our pain; we really hoped to be all together in Armenia, talking, thinking, breathing Armenian, struggling to build Hayastan! However, I want to share a thought that is in my heart deeply appreciating everything which happens in our nation's history; good or bad, turning into good for all of us and for even all of the world.
The article is about ancient times of Armenia. This is helpful information for travelers who want to travel to Armenia.
Armenia is among sites of earliest life. Evidence of prehistoric humankind have been found in caves and open air settlements here. From 9-7 BC on the territory of Armenia was established one of the most powerful empires of the ancient world, the Urartian, or Van Kingdom, noted for its canonized architectural principles and proportional systems of separate buildings. The first cities with systemized layouts and landscape terra-forming features started to emerge (Erebuni, Teyshebaini, Tushpa, Argishtikhinili, etc.). The arts of jewelry, ceramics, armory forging, stone and bronze sculpture reached utmost development.
