    Peter,
    What thoughts do you have as an American of Armenian ancestry and one like me without an ian on the end of our name? I try to share my heritage with my children but life makes one very American with a sprinkling of Armenian.

    I remember as a kid watching your parents on What’s My Line and my grandmother always reminding us that your mom was Armenian. She would always point this out with great pride and we always would root for her to solve the game. She was always terrific.

      not surprised to learn of such profound roots. survivors of many flooding scenarios stem from the highlands.and branching out to assist humanity is the progressive goal as always. can we suggest a peace center for cultural studies in El-Amarna to further some unfinished business? thanx

    This is not so much a comment pertaining to the previous comment, as much as it is a former student of Peter hoping to get in touch with him.

    I think of you often and am forever grateful to you for your guidance and wisdom as a lawyer and as a thinker. Please consider emailing me.

    Thank you.

    Lisa.

    Hi. I have been giving much thought to the Israel-Palestine conflict and after much thought, have come up with a 5 step plan that I believe could lead to the solution to the problem. It’s both a two-state solution AND a one-state solution. I would like my suggestion to be considered and potentially passed on to both Jewish and Palestinian peace orientated groups.
    Who would you recommend I speak to?
