Today we remember the genocide of over 350,000 Pontic Greeks. We must remember AND recognize what happened if our declaration of #NeverAgain is to have any meaning. “I married into a Greek family and I’ve heard stories about my wife’s grandparents, who were actually refugees, as little kids, from the same conflict…. The first conversation I remember having with Eric about it was late one night when I was feeling specifically paranoid about the future and having young children, and Eric has young children of a similar age. It was just one father to another, talking about the climate of the world and imagining, “What if it were me, and someone kicked my door in at 4 o’clock in the morning and separated my family? What if they took our children away, or took me away, and then my family doesn’t have a father?” #ChrisCornell #keepthepromise #neverforget #legendsneverdie
