I am Hellene

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… 

You call me Greek, but it’s Hellene, NOT Greek, HELLENE!
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 Hellenism… The entire world aspires to its ideals…
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…
