Another death…

They say that death comes in threes. This does sadden me, as following Charles Melkonian’s passing, 3 days later (Sunday morning) another very good friend lost his life to cancer.

Vartkes Barsam was a person who gave so much to Armenia and the Armenian people.

Though much of what he did was and will probably never be made public, I can say that the results of his contribution to the Artsakh liberation movement physically saved thousands of lives and can be credited to numerous victories which we might have had with large losses or not had at all. He also made huge contributions to Armenia proper itself and to the Armenian people all over the world in various ways.

This is another man like Charles Melkonian who has put himself in harms way to help out those who found themselves in vulnerable situations without looking for recognition or to promote himself. This is why I’m guessing most of you have never heard of him

Vartkes, I will always remember you and all the advice and information you gifted to me.
