No matter what we do we can't deny our roots.Each one is rare in what he/she does whether good or bad.
If we deny whom we are is that how we will not be distinct ???
: : it's so very true that we have had our share of bad leaders but also there have been people who truely worked for our nation.
: : As to what you mentioned:"I don't want to say I'm even part Assyrian anymore".That's ofcourse your right to say and think what you want,but actually every community has its own bad people and not because there are some bad in my nation I would deny who I am and exclude myself,I'd rather say what I think and let those who are bad hear what I'm saying,we have to make the change from within...If you,I and others would say that they don't want to be part of this nation any more then what would be left for us ?
: xxx I suppose they'd LOVE to be known as the last Assyrians on earth, wouldn't they. That would make them "rare," & supposedly "valuable." You're absolutely right.
