armenian genocide?

Obviously, it was genocide. No question. 1.5 million Armenians were killed by Turks in the early 1900s.
But is now the time to deal with it? I don't know.
What do we do about it? I don't know.

In general, I believe that you've got to notice the wound, scrub it out and bandage it up before you can expect healing. And in general I believe that sooner is better than later. However, my thoughts on this have always been on a small scale. A scraped knee, in relationship with my roommate, my family...maybe as big as a church...but on a national scale?? Dealing with innumerable murders? Is it the same? How do you decide the time? Why is America involved? Why can't Turks just admit the problem?
