Summer is always a nice time to read about those indepth topics we can’t read the rest of the year. A great topic is the great miracle that is the Greek race is. Greeks live in the same corner of Europe they were living 4,000 years ago. Greeks speak the same language they spoke 4,000 years ago. Greeks write the same alphabet they used 4,000 years ago.
Despite the two only conquests we’ve underwent (Roman and Ottoman), we have preserved our fatherland so well that we live in the same place Achilles or Hercules did. Ruins and remnants from the ancestors are around our neighborhoods, so the bind with our forefathers is not only spiritual but physical too. We have preserved our racial language so well that a Greek of today could understand a Greek of the Trojan Wars. We have preserved our alphabet so well that a Greek of today can read writings from a Greek of the Periclan Era such as Plato as if it had been written by his father, with an ease that would shock non-Greeks.
We share our fatherland with no other country, we share our language with no other nation, we share our language with no other people. We are Greeks, descendants from Zeus, an unparalled anthropological phenomenon.
