On “I am Hellene”
Thank you everyone, for following, sharing, thank you for the critics, thank you for subscribing, sending messages, thank you for comments good and bad. Wow, a bit overwhelmed.
The “I am Hellene” vid is an homage to the “I am Canadian” video, which when I saw it I asked myself what would I say if I had ONE minute or so to explain who I am, and demolish all stereotypes I have encountered all my life.
But… the “I am Hellene” video is no beer commercial. There is nobody behind it but me. Nobody sponsored it, promoted it, nobody marketed it. It somehow just promoted itself. Some people caught it - thank god - and the word was spread. I speak for myself and represent myself only - or/and only those who understand Hellenism, or their heritage, the way I do - and actually the way it truly is - beyond its borders. ”So far has Athens left the rest of mankind behind in thought and expression that her pupils have become the teachers of the world, and she has made the name of Hellas distinctive no longer of race but of intellect, and the title of Hellene a badge of education rather than of common descent.” (Isocrates)
