Colossus of Rhodes Project

Young professionals from Greece, Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom have been inspired to take up the ambitious “Colossus of Rhodes Project,” aiming to revive one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
The Colossus of Rhodes was a statue of the Greek titan-god of the sun Helios, erected on the Greek island of Rhodes by Charles of Lindos, in 280 BC, to celebrate Rhodes’ victory over the ruler of Cyprus, Antigonus I Monophthalmus. It was one of the tallest statues of the ancient world standing over 30 meters (around 98 feet) high.
The bronze structure was destructed after Rhodes was hit by the 226 BC earthquake, however, it was not until 654 AD that Saracens ransacked the island and sold the statue’s relics.

Welcome Back Home Prime Minister Trudeau

We're Back

I had the pleasure of meeting Justin not so long ago on April 19, 2011 at Liberal Rally in Surrey BC, the son of Pierre Elliot Trudeau spoke to Liberal Supporters, when he finished his speech, he walked around the room shaking the hands of every volunteer and attendee,
I was taken aback as I looked in those striking eyes and that charming peaceful smile,
I sensed I was shaking the hand of our countries next leader and I hoped silently in my heart that he would become Canada's most famous leader, not for his words, as so many have done before him, but by accomplishing the impossible and living up to his father's memory by achieving greatness with all the wonderful things he would do for the world and the people who support him.
I am so proud to be Canadian with Greek roots that lead back to Thrace. The land of hero's, warrior's and land that gave birth to this political system of democracy and compassion,

May God bless you Justin and keep you safe.
MyGreekSpirit, endorses you and supports you.

It’s time for Canada to once again work constructively with its allies. A new Liberal government will do just that.
