H. J. RES. 58
Designating March 25, 1991, as `Greek Independence Day: A National Day of
Celebration of Greek and American Democracy'.
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
January 7, 1991
Mr. BILIRAKIS (for himself, Mr. NEAL of North Carolina, Mrs. KENNELLY,
Mr. CONYERS, and Mr. MCCOLLUM) introduced the following joint resolution;
which was referred to the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service
JOINT RESOLUTION
Designating March 25, 1991, as `Greek Independence Day: A National Day of
Celebration of Greek and American Democracy'.
Whereas the ancient Greeks developed the concept of democracy, in which the
supreme power to govern was vested in the people;
Whereas the Founding Fathers of the United States of America drew heavily
upon the political and philosophical experience of ancient Greece in forming
our representative democracy;
Whereas March 25, 1991, marks the 170th anniversary of the beginning of the
revolution which freed the Greek people from the Ottoman Empire;
Whereas these and other ideals have forged a close bond between our two
nations and their peoples; and
Whereas it is proper and desirable to celebrate with the Greek people, and to
reaffirm the democratic principles from which our two great nations sprang:
Now, therefore, be it
  Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States
  of America in Congress assembled, That March 25, 1991, is designated as
  `Greek Independence Day: A National Day of Celebration of Greek and American
  Democracy', and that the President of the United States is authorized
  and requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the
  United States to observe the designated day with appropriate ceremonies
  and activities.
