Who am I

Read this poem by William Saroyan and you will know all you need to know about me.

 I should like to see any power in this world destroy this race,
 this small tibe of unimportant people whose history is ended,
 whose wars have been fought and lost,
 whose structures have crumbled,
 whose literature is unread,
 whose music is unheard,
 and whose prayers are no more answered.

 Go ahead, destrit this race! destroy Armenia!
 See if you can do it.
 Send them from their homes into the desert.
 Let them have neither bread nor water.
 Burn their homes and churches.
 Then, see if they will laugh again, see if they will not sing and pray again.

  For, when two of them meet anywhere in the world,
 see if they will not create a New Armenia.

- William Saroyan
