I will still ask the question...where is the money going...show me the papers.
As a young college student, im very bitter towards our organizations and elders. You have let us down. The pamphlet of the convention guide states that it is the 38th annual. In that case, the organizations have been organizing the convention for that long, and obviously have been making a profit, but how come its never spent wisely. The organizations want to get youth involved, but where are the fruits of your labors?
I repeatedly hear that our youth is melting with "nookhrayeh", and that we are losing our youth. Well, to all the big-wigs, I can say that you're losing them, because they have lost hope in you.
Possible solution: taking all the proceeds from all the previous conventions, parties, and investing them back into the community. An Assyrian Youth Center. An art and musical center, my God wake up. We live in a country were centers like this are at every corner. Only the forgotten Assyrians dont have one.
