Here are some of the reasons to be proud to be Greek:

• Alexander the Greet, greatest conqueror of them all


• Olympic games, past and present

• Olympia Dukakis, George Stephanopolous, and Yanni

• Birth of democracy, cradle of western civilization


• Aesop's wise and winning fables

• Warm souvlaki, cold retsina

• And every Greek diner you ever ate in!
