The truth will set us free: Armenians and Turks reconciled
Armenians and Turks Reconciled is simply unimaginable. Yet the unthinkable is possible and even highly probable. Back in 1985, if anyone had predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall, they would have damaged their careers. In that same year, if anyone had predicted that Robbin Island-prisoner Nelson Mandela would become President of an apartheid-free South Africa, they would have been ridiculed as naive dreamers. In 2002, George Jerjian predicted that the Turks, in wanting more democracy, would be compelled to face the truth about the Armenian genocide and reconciliation would ensue. Without a doubt, people are chuckling now, but for how long? We all tend to think that big results require big efforts, efforts beyond the ability of one individual. In "The Tipping Point," author Malcolm Gladwell shows us that one imaginative person applying a well-placed lever can move the world. Jerjian believes Armenians and Turks are almost at the "tipping point."
