Letter to the Editor: Appreciation for TNH’s Recent Articles

To the Editor:

Selling Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Chicago was heartbreaking. An important parish and part of the history of Greek-Americans in wonderful Chicago.

Whoever defaced the two icons of St. George in Lynn, MA – a cowardly act.

I’m looking forward to seeing and reading about the planned visit of his Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros to the Bahamas. It will certainly be a historic milestone for Greek-Orthodoxy.

I was watching the 9/11 ceremony when Greek-American Nick Haros reacted to the shocking statement “some people did something” by Democrat U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. 3,000 Americans who had ancestral roots from 80 (?) countries were murdered!

I enjoyed reading Professor Dan Georgakas’ excellent article on the history of Christian minorities massacred by the Turks. This is part of a bigger event of Empires occupying peoples and land for their own evil intentions.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” All good people need to do something when it comes to saving the Greeks, Armenians, Assyrians, Jews, Africans and others.
