Extract from her Biographic Note

I sent Mme Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney following message:


Dearest Sister, Brave Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney!

I will be very short in my note. I saw a short clip on youtube on the Greek National day from last year, listening to my country mates announcing you a modern Philhellene and BOUBOULINA.

It makes me proud being Greek, born Pontian Hellene, living in the heart of Greece in the province Macedonia, knowing there are non Greek people in the world sharing with us the Hellenic flame for life and spirit for global peace, love and happiness. I am really proud knowing there are people like you. Hellenism is a free global heritage without copyrights left to all of us from those wise men and women once lived in ancient Hellas.

Blessed be woman of courage, love, good spirit and global peace. I am sure you are a great daughter, sister, wife and caring mother. Happy be those who share your love and tenderness (your family and closest friends). Having people like you in our governments I am sure we will see better days in future.

Hurray for the Hellenic Spirit!

Love and respect.

OFFICIAL US GOVERNEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT
ON GREEK INDEPENDENCE DAY.

Pelosi Statement on Greek Independence Day

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on the 188th anniversary of Greek Independence.  Today, the House will vote on H. Res. 273, which recognizes this anniversary and celebrates Greek and American democracy. 

“Greece and the United States share a special bond that reaches back to the founding of America.  The Greek philosophical tradition inspired America’s Founding Fathers in our struggle for freedom, which, in turn, inspired Greek patriots to fight for and achieve their independence in the 1820s.

“The United States opened its arms to multitudes of Greek immigrants who brought with them beautiful traditions that have contributed greatly to the beautiful mosaic that is America.  In my own City of San Francisco, the Greek-American community is a vital and vibrant component of our world-renowned diversity. 

“The Greeks taught the world that the power of a legitimate government can spring only from the people.  Today, both in America and in Greece, we remain dedicated to this principle, and to the advancement of democracy and equality.  As a strong supporter of the Congressional Caucus on Hellenic Issues, I am proud to join with the more than 1 million Americans of Greek heritage to commemorate the 188th anniversary of Greek Independence Day.”
