A few days ago teacher Stella Panou-Nika passed away, she had literally dedicated her life to the Greek youths of Himarra in Northern Epirus and the passing on of the Greek language in the unredeemed region! Even prior to the reopening of the Greek school in Himarra in 2007, the late brave teacher would gather the children behind the church of St. Marina, where she would teach them the Greek language and history, and well as the songs and traditions of Epirus.
It goes without saying, naturally, that the news of her death didn’t occupy in the slightest either the private channels or the respective State channels, which continue to operate with an unacceptable corporatist perspective insisting on informing us with details on the life and class and of every insignificant journalist who have passed away. The same, of course, applies for each representative of “progressiveness” who’s had the same fate.
Only for the Greek men and women who have dedicated their lives to the protection of the National Ideals and the revival (even indirectly) of the “Secret School” is the loss of their life even in the slightest detail not allowed. Precisely because the appropriate attention to their living activities would create an inevitable comparison with the various representatives of ethno-nihilism, of multiculturalism and the deconstruction of the Greek Identity, History and Tradition, who often don’t just receive funeral services “at public expense” but also lived in the same manner.
