Commemorating All of the Assyrian Martyrs

August 7th has been designated as a Memorial Day for Assyrian Martyrs. Throughout our history, our Assyrian people have stood up for their religion, language, and national existence, bravely defended our existence even if it meant suffering and giving up their own lives to defend and protect our cultural national existence.

The lesson to be learned is that we need to dedicate ourselves to preserving our language, culture and heritage. Let us honor the Assyrian Martyrs and pray to the Lord to rest their souls and accept the sacrifices they made in the name of Him and the Assyrian nation.
