[Congressional Bills 103th Congress] [From the U.S. Government Printing Office] [S.J. Res. 22 Enrolled Bill (ENR)] S.J.Res. 22 One Hundred Third Congress of the United States of America AT THE FIRST SESSION Begun and held at the City of Washington on Tuesday, the fifth day of January, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-three 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 of America 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 one hundred and seventy-second 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. Speaker of the House of Representatives. Vice President of the United States and President of the Senate.
