Letter to the Editor: Appreciation for a Fine Issue

To the Editor:

Another fine issue. The interesting picture of the Ecumenical Patriarch with the Pope was memorable. The article on Greek-American veterans defending their honor against the backdrop of a flawed and anti-Hellenic bias by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace was enlightening. The letter about immigrating back to Hellas after spending most of their lives in America is an important facet in Greek-American lives. I’ve been to Hellas 38 times, the first time in 1971 and last time in 2006. You see the same ‘ugly faces’ of relatives. Sadly, as the years go on, my dear grandparents and a few relatives have passed on in the village. Going back for a visit, it’ll be an empty feeling in my heart, despite many unforgettable memories. The Taygetos Mountains will be a timeless memory. “We Returned to Greece and I Regret It” is apropos in the letter by Chryssi to Stavroula Tsoutsa. Unforgettable.
