Today started with an informative session by the Assyrian Democratic Movement’s (ADM) Mr. Mikhael Benjamen covering ADM’s goals, agenda and accomplishments. Following the presentation and question/answer period, our group headed to the local bazar for some gifts, souvenirs and Assyrian CDs.
At night, we attended an Assyrian wedding in our beloved homeland. This beautiful experience of singing, dancing in celebration of the happy couple only reminded us of the bond Assyrians all over the world share. No matter how scattered we are, our customs, traditions and weddings are celebrated to the same harmonies while we hold hands in union as one community and dance the night away.
