The Calendar of History Marks the 21st Century
Today the whole world celebrates Women’s day, and we – Armenians – love our women so much that we celebrate their holiday month-long. And the matter is not about gifts and flowers but rather about attention and care, love and warmth, that should constitute an inseparable part of a woman’s life. It is not enough just to give them flowers and write in a card how much you love them. No doubt it is a very pleasant deed but they give us their love and care, whole warmth they have got every single day starting with the early morning coffee till the smile on opening of the door in the evening.
I would not like to exaggerate a woman’s role. However, if we try to imagine our life without our mothers, loving wife and sisters, our best friends since childhood, everything will instantly lose its beauty, warmth, the colours will fade and the world will gradually destroy.
The two genders have been created to balance each other and jointly create the world, help and push each other forward. Woman is physically weak but innerly strong creature who can make a man stronger and who always needs love and care: such are women, like a flower that fades from the lack of attention.
Let us take the occasion to congratulate our mothers, beloved women and sisters, wish them endless happiness and careless smiles. And let us not forget to thank them for giving us birth and meaning to our life. Let us love and appreciate them 365/366 days long.
I congratulate you dear women on behalf of the “European Integration” NGO team as well and may you always stay beautiful, beloved and appreciated.
