Wow, I hadn't realized that I even felt that way until I read your post. I had never really articulated this thought before.

I'm not Armenian, but my people (HK) group also stand at around 7m and dwindling, with our probably dying language, and a politically powerful persecutor who pretends to be our Lord and Savior. Our people haven't been around for near as long as you guys, but a number of what you said really hit hard: (1) the political situation breaks my heart, (2) I hadn't seen non-immediate circle folks of my people for a while ..., (3) that hole in my heart I don't usually realise is there.

It reminds me of watching the new Trek movie, when Spock realises he is now a member of an endangered species.

Do you think.... if certain things of your culture will persist long after the last one of you perish, what might they be?

What's HK mean?

Hong Kong. We speak a different dialect of Chinese than People's Republic of China, have our own currency, police force, laws, courts, economy, writing system, food, and culture. But China had a choke hold on the little city state and wants to see us assimilated, or at least dead before any rise of being independent.
