Farewell to Keghart.com Readers

January 5, 2013

Dear Readers,

With pleasure and pride the Keghart.com team has periodically replenished the website with new articles, op-ed pieces and announcements of significant cultural and other community events. Judging by the accumulated statistics, readership has reached a respectable level indicating that the content is well received. Unfortunately, due to health reasons I have to relinquish my position as publisher. However, our team will search for a new publisher who would carry on the non-partisan and progressive tradition that Keghart.com has established over the past five years and three months. Regular operations of the website will soon cease until further notice. Meanwhile, individuals who would like to have Five years of Keghart.com book will receive a PDF copy via e-mail. Please write to dikran@keghart.com

Farewell.

    Dear Dr.Abrahamian,

    You were a brave Armenian intellectual creating Keghart website five years ago and you are – making this hard decision. You did so much for the nation and we are thankful for that. I pray for you and am sure thousands of your readers do the same.
    It has to help.

    Establishing Keghart.com has been a courageous step and it has been an interesting and inspiring source of information. I hope it is not a too serious health condition and I am counting on seeing you here again soon.

  8. Passing the torch
     I am alarmed, apprehensive and very sorry that you have to pass the torch. Throughout the 5 years YOU, and your TEAM have done an outstanding job.

    I hope and wish that you are mistaken and your health is not in such a terrible state as you think or you were told to be.

    The mind and body have infinite power to heal and recover. All you have to do is believe in yourself, your “hidden powers”, be determined, and work to get well.

    I wish you a quick and as much as possible “full recovery”.  I have faith in you that you will, and look forward to your contributions to Keghart.com and others in one way or other.

    All the best,

    Peter

  9. Farewell and Hello

    Sireli Dikran,

    On the occasion of changing of the guards for the valiant Keghart.com, I salute you from the vantage ground of half a century of friendship steeped in some of the loftiest youthful activities and more mature ideals afterwards. You faced your human and patriotic commitments with the same professional zeal manifested in your private medical practice. Firmly adhering to your principles and convictions, you demonstrated no hatred or bitterness towards your adversaries. You steered Keghart.com safely and sanely through the tumultuous initial 5-plus years of its course. I assure you, my dear friend, your name will be tied to the first major Diaspora Armenian website with a healthy popular non-partisan readership and progressive intellectual associates.

    My best wishes for a healthy and pleasant slowdown.

    Mishd paregamoren,
    Sahag Toutjian

  11. Dear Dr. Abrahamian

    Dear Dr. Abrahamian,
    Very sorry to learn of your poor health. Your web site was an infinite source of knowledge for us Armenians and specially for the younger generation. Thank you.  I wish you speedy recovery and look forward to reading you again soon. 
    Kind regards,
    Maria Lucia   

  12. Goodbye

    Dear Doc Abe,

    Sorry to hear you are giving Keghart up. Please take care of yourself. You matter to all of us and we want to see you well and happy.
     
    Blessings,
    Ruth

  13. Dear friend Dikran

    Dear friend,

    You became Oxygen for the Armenians worldwide, and I am sure that you will return. Do not abandon us, please !!!!
    Any help that I can make?

  14. Strange as it might seem

    ………..

    "Strange as it might seem to many colleagues, I somehow do not really feel that the real time Keghart has been around only five years. My own impression is that Keghart  is around five times five years, at least a quarter of a century. The time honoured saying that quantity creates quality is in need of an act of  reversal if Keghart is in mind. It is the quality of your website creation that really counts. And I am counting it to be at least a quarter of a century. Bless your stamina, courage, perseverance and most importantly, your love to enrich the cultural heritage of our modern communication media with such ĖLAN VITAL."

  15. Losing Keghart

    Dr. Dikran Abrahamian,

    I am so sad to hear about your health and losing my beloved keghart.com. I am confident you will be back; keghart.com means a lot to me.

  16. Շնորհակալություն…
    Շատ սիրելի Տիգրան,
    Շատ շնորհակալ եմ այն հարատև ազգային ու լրատվական աշխատանքների համար, որ դուք կատարեցիք այս տարիների ընթացքում… ցանկանում  եմ քաջառողջություն և ամենալավն ու բարին…
    Ջերմ ողջույններով
