UNFULFILLED DREAM

My son was studying in the high school named after Paronyan, where Persian language was taught. He loved the language, was a good student. His teacher of Persian said, Armen will become either an ambassador, or translator. I brought up my two children – Armen and Anna alone. It was hard, but our family was happy. Armen attended classes of violin, karate. At the final event Iranian Ambassador to Armenia Sobhani was also present. Hearing Armen’s crisp and clear Persian the Ambassador promised that he’ll arrange Armen’s education in one of the leading universities in Iran.
