Alan Whitehorn: Armenia and the Double Helix

Two intertwined strands,
not quite identical,
yet from the same original genetic source.
Positioned differently in crucial ways.

Like a complex double helix,
Armenia and the Diaspora
but also distinct.

Each needing the other
to sustain a dynamic and vibrant community.
Hayastan and Armenia, twin strands,
defining each other.

A complex nation
that has struggled to survive
and is a wonder
to behold.
