Thursday was the 24th of April, which is the commemoration day of the Armenian Genocide. As usual, we marched in Hollywood and then in the afternoon, we went to the Turkish Embassy on Wilshire Boulevard and had a protest.
The most awesome thing happened afterwards!The protest ended at 6. We crossed the street. All of a sudden my friend goes, "Oh look at that black Escalade." So I turned to my left and saw the car. My eyes moved to the driver.....and it was........................................
DAVID BECKHAM!!!!!!!!! We all went crazy! His kids were in the back seat and we were waving and they were waving hahaha~ It was awesome! I was already talking on the phone with my dad before we saw him.....and then when we saw him...I started screaming and my dad got worried and starting asking what was going on hahahaha~MORE PICTURES HERE (none of D BECK...sorry)PS. hahahaha I'm not a big fan of Beckham either(and I don't think he looks hot...) ...it's just the fact that I saw him so randomly...it was fun!!!!~
PPS. 93 years ago, the Ottoman Empire tried to systematically destroy the Armenians. It is referred to as the Armenian Genocide. Every year, Armenians attend demonstrations and protests because the Turkish government is denying what they have done. 21 countries have so far recognized the Genocide:
|Uruguay||City Vatican City|
The United States has not yet recognized the Genocide.....for political reasons.
