I am Hellene!




Hey,
I'm neither a public service worker, nor a thief.
And, I don't drink ouzo, break plates or say Opa in my daily life.
Oh and I don't know Yorgo, Yanni, or Niko from Greece, although I am certain that they're really really nice...
My country is a democracy, actually it invented the concept...
I speak Greek and five other languages, and most of the people from my country speak at many foreign languages...
I could probably sew my country's flag in my backpack, but Greece's heritage goes far beyond the geographical borders. It invented the West...
I believe in Hellenism... The entire world aspires to its ideals...
And if I owe anybody any money today -and by the way I am not the only one- it's because I invented the idea of a free market! And if you critique me today, it's because I invented the idea of critique.
I believe in Freedom , so if I need to, I protest...
I believe in the joy of life. I have the right to. There's nothing wrong with that!
I can swim in the waters of over 6000 islands!
My country is of exceptional beauty, and tradition. And my family is a sacred institution!
You call me Greek, but it's Hellene, NOT Greek, HELLENE!
My name is Katerina...
And I am Hellene...
