To arms!

Duration2 hour 10 minute

“To arms! There is so much impulse and power in this short phrase. Few languages possess the expressiveness found in these two Armenian words. It’s a mad heroic march that rallies armies, directs them, compels them to storm, and leads to a certain victory. It’s a call, obeying the sacred meaning of which, intoxicated by Armenian fury, armies moved towards the borders of Armenia without fearing to face death.
The heroes of this story are people who have dreamed of peace since time immemorial. They seek ways to work, live, and create. Unfortunately, the leaders of great nations shout and make decisions that are unacceptable and incomprehensible to this people.”
