Glendale Community College students were given a white board, pen and a chance to send President Obama a message. 

In one photo, Glendale locals answered one question: Why should the president officially recognize the Armenian genocide?

Lori Boghigian, 19, answered that “accepting [genocide] today will avoid future genocides.”

“If he believes in human rights, then he must recognize [the] Armenian genocide,” Hambarsom Balian said. 

Glendale New-Press asks: Do you think President Barack Obama should recognize the Armenian genocide? Why or why not?
