Cher as Armenian

Cherwitharmeniankids2A recent US Magazine has the Kardashian clan exploring their roots with a visit to Armenia on the 100th anniversary of Armenian genocide. Cher went to Armenia back in the 1990s with Robert Camiletti.

Recently, Cher called on Turkey to admit the genocide: http://armenpress.am/eng/news/801610/cher-urges-turkey-to-acknowledge-genocide.html

Turkey resisted: http://us.cnn.com/2015/04/24/europe/armenia-turkey-massacre/index.html 

The press will stay on the story: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-wp-blm-news-bc-turkey23-20150423-story.html

Cher admits she didn’t have as much contact with her Armenian relatives but that doesn’t  mean her Armenian side is less important than her other heritage. Sometimes absence matters as much as does  presence.

You can explore the reasons why a certain side of the family is missing. For instance, why didn’t Cher see her Dad enough? He was allegedly a mess. Why would he have been a mess? Maybe his parents coddled him too much (just a hypothetical—I don’t know these people!). Why might he have been coddled? Because his parents were genocide survivors and they were just happy to have a family alive and breathing. Why was there a genocide in Armenia? Well, for that we turn back to the Turks.

Whatever the story, every decisions her relatives once made has impacted her life in some way.
