Flowers planted honoring Japanese and Armenian Americans

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A flower with special meaning has been planted honoring the history of Japanese and Armenian Americans. Forget-me-nots were planted in the garden of Holy Trinity Armenian Church by students and members of the church.

Thursday was declared a day of remembrance commemorating the centennial of the Armenian genocide, as well as honoring Japanese Americans who went through evacuations and internment. The church pastor says it's important for young people to know what happened as well as everyone in the Central Valley.

Dozens of upcoming events will commemorate the centennial. For a full list of locations and links, head to the Armenian Genocide Centennial - Fresno Committee online.
