This is what Hrant and Agos have been doing for the past 11 years. Talking, telling, and communicating. There were many attempts trying to silence him. He got reactions not only from outside but also from within the Community. Finally, like his ancestors, fell victim to vicious hearts where love and compassion had emigrated by force. Nevertheless, the Agos without Hrant, will continue following the same path. This is not to challenge anybody but a state of existence… Because we know that first there were words and a person who has no words is not living. According to this view which many may find absurd, in fact Hrant is not dead. In this sense, in the hearts and minds of tens of thousands attending the funeral ceremony following his death, Hrant has resurrected.
This is why this year, Zadik is more filled with grief but also much more precious compared to past holidays.
