HANC CELEBRATES GREEK INDEPENDENCE DAY 2014

 

The Hellenic American National Council (HANC) joins all the other Greek organizations in the United States and the Greek Diaspora in the Celebration of the 193rd Greek Independence Day.

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

 

The Greek struggle for independence against the Ottoman yoke was long, painful and destructive. A tremendous price was paid in human loss and material destruction. Most of the liberated area was living in misery, poverty and pain. All the ravages of war, however, did not stop the creativity, industriousness and ingenuity of the Greek people. Despite the many adversities they soon moved to a higher level in the political and economic ladder. In a few decades not only they surpassed in economic and other standards their former masters, but were also able to use their newfound power to expand their territory, first through the annexation of Thessaly (1881) and then through the victorious Balkan Wars of 1912-13.

Greece had many vicissitudes in this two hundred year period. She experienced the pinnacle of endurance and success in the 1821 struggle and the pinnacle of glory during the “OXI Day” period; and in between she endured the catastrophe of 1922 and the war of 1897. The dawn of the 21st century, however, found Greece as one of the most prosperous and educated countries in the world celebrating its second Olympic Games. Today things changed, once more, and Greece needs our assistance.

 

HANC and all the other Greek-American organizations should do their utmost to celebrate this special day by taking part in the many parades across this great nation, by assisting, money-wise and otherwise, in the success of those parades and finally by generously supporting our ancestral land, who is going through a very difficult patch these days.

 

Let us all join the celebrations and parades across this great nation.

 

Let us all support with our generous contribution all the worthy causes in the land of Heroes and the cradle of European Civilization.

 

Long Live the Greek Independence!

 

Long Live the Eternal Spirit of Greece and God Bless America!
