                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
Designating March 25, 1993, 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 drew heavily upon the 
        political experience and philosophy of ancient Greece in forming our 
        representative democracy;
Whereas these and other ideals have forged a close bond between our two nations 
        and their peoples;
Whereas March 25, 1993, marks the 172nd anniversary of the beginning of the 
        revolution which freed the Greek people from the Ottoman Empire; 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 were 
        born: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That March 25, 1993, is 
designated as ``Greek Independence Day: A National Day of Celebration 
of Greek and American Democracy''. The President is authorized and 
requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United 
States to observe the day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
