RES. 10 Designating March 25, 1993, as ``Greek Independence Day: A National Day of Celebration of Greek and American Democracy''. _______________________________________________________________________ IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES January 5, 1993 Mr. Bilirakis introduced the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service _______________________________________________________________________ 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. <all>
