Tim Willert Vatche Soghomonian had hoped to go the distance, but by day five the Glendale Community College student was overcome by headaches, fatigue and low blood pressure. "When I went to stand up, I felt dizzy," Soghomonian recalled Tuesday, a day after five fellow Armenian Youth Federation members ended their six-day hunger strike.
