"I am not an Assyrian, but I have great respects for a group of people who were the rulers of the world at one time. I enjoy learning about the Assyrian culture, and history, it is one of great honor, pride, hardships, triumphs, and indeed great respect. I admire Assyrians for being the strong people that they are. I am glad that this information is being available on the internet, so that others like myself can learn what a great culture and heritage Assyrians have. Thank you very much to all of those who are making this possible, and I am sure that God will not forget the plight, that Assyrians have endured. Peace be onto all of you."
