Letter to the Editor: So We Don’t Forget Where We Came From

To the Editor:

Let us never forget who we are, where we come from, what our roots are, what our history is, what our identity has been for thousands of years, what our contribution to humanity is, in terms of inspiration, scientific discovery, registration and ranking in their beneficial scientific discipline.

Let us not remain inactive, but with vigilance, thought, and lively reasoning we dedicate ourselves to this great idea of our Greek University.

I consider it the pride of the Greek Diaspora through our Greek University to succeed, through Greek studies, for the future generation of our student youth and other ethnicities, in immersing themselves in the multifaceted Greek letters from our ancient tradition and brilliant and cultured ancestors whose discoveries and synthesis of our language, in any case syntactic, gives meaning to their inspiration from their spiritual source. You will see, if we do not decide, like well-organized Greeks in America all together, to build a Greek University, we will receive a relentless hit from History and be judged weak and only concerned with luxury.

We will be irrelevant and reluctant, when we do not bequeath to our future generations from our Greek University, with all this great Olympic spirit, first in language and the written word and also the multifaceted and longstanding radiant achievement of our culture, from our Greek University with teachers in every field of science, art and technology.

Let us, therefore, avoid the blows of history, when the accompanying forces in spirit and money do exist, and are even capable, like a triumphant Greek community, to establish spectacularly our Greek University. To raise, finally, the shield of protection for our language, sown and rooted in the generations to come.

What do you say, are we ready? I say, that we are ready!
