    Dear Caroline Cox
    I am Vahagn Hakobyan from Nagorno Karabakh, and I am writing you to express my gratitude for your devotion and presence in our nation’s life during that hard periods in 1990s. I can clearly remember that moment in my childhood, when it was very difficult and life-changing period in our country, and every contribution and little attention was very important and encouraging for everyone.
    Me and my friends were unexplainably happy and careless due to your presents and we have been waiting for your “boxes” with great pleasure and heartbeat. We were so excited from your presents, that we did not even wait to reach home, and we open “boxes” in the street. And when we waited on the queue the high level of emotions make us become impatient and sensitive. Now we are all adults and have reached to our goals, and that difficult periods have passed and we can afford us lots of things, but even today remembering all that presents we felt huge amount of happiness. All that your kind and human investment in the shape of little “boxes” changed all our nation’s attitude towards humanity and about the concept “kindness”.
    Though it was tough and difficult period in our lives, you gave us moments to remember and felt absolutely careless. And almost 20 years have passed from that day, and during these years I collected all my emotions, words and courage to write this letter to you.
    I hope that you will read this letter, because it is so important and valuable for me to inform you about all these emotions of thankfulness. This letter is not only my decision to write you, but also take this letter as a sign of acknowledgment of whole children of Nagorno Karabakh.

    Sincerely from Vahagn Hakobya

  2. Such an earnest, beautiful acknowledgement to a woman who brought a measure of happiness in your life. This was a treat to read. I hope you are well Vahagn Hakobyan.

  3. Enormous thanks for the encouragement you have been and still are to many millions of people
