George M. Logothetis Shares Inspiring Speech at One To World Fulbright Awards

NEW YORK – George M. Logothetis, Libra Group Chairman and CEO, was honored at the 2022 One To World Fulbright Awards Dinner at The Plaza Hotel in New York on May 24.

In his inspiring acceptance speech, Logothetis noted how happy he was to be at the event after “a freak accident five years ago led to a four-year health crisis.”

“I nearly lost my life on four separate occasions… so when I say I am glad to be here please appreciate deeply, truly, profoundly how glad I am to be here tonight,” he said.

Logothetis quoted from the ancient Greek playwright Aeschylus: “And even in our sleep, pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon our heart and in our own despair against our will comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.”

“So what have I understood these last five years that can help you be hopeful future leaders of tomorrow… I learned that the last vestige of human freedom is how you choose to react to what can be an unjust world,” Logothetis said. “You cannot escape conflict, injustice, suffering, pain, but you can elect how you will respond to it and what you take from it.”

Logothetis’ full acceptance speech is available on YouTube:
