As all of you well know I’m an American Greek. While saddened by the course of my family’s root country I try to remember the things I was taught growing up that made me proud of it’s rich history.
It is part of that history I’d like to delve into today. My roots are literally spread across Greece. My father’s side of the family is from an island, I won’t tell you which hint hint. My mother’s side is more mainland, not telling either may save that for a future session.
Greece, as all countries, has seen it share of war. There is a particular battle that sticks in my mind, I am proud of my people’s relentless spirit that fought hard against a foe that was more “well equipped.” What I would like from you is to tell me first, what island holds this part of my heritage, and second, to which battle I’m referring. The island is one that is extremely self-reliant. It is rich in music, poetry, and so much more, and the sites are absolutely breathtaking. Please place your answers in the comments below. I don’t think I’ll need to give too many hints, as I have already. Although if needed, rest assured I will. Thanks for taking part, and always reading! Long ashes to all! -Evan
