To My Mother -- My Strength and Inspiration
MOLON LAVE –
What does that mean? Our mother was a true Spartan who believed that, like Leonidas in the movie 300 who was staring at a Persian army of tens of thousands against his force of 300 Spartan warriors, one must STAND THEIR GROUND at all times. This mindset is epitomized in the ancient Spartan saying "Molon Lave", which means "bring it on" or "come and get it" when faced with danger, challenge or adversity. She had virtue and great courage. She taught us that life can be hard but you must persevere and STAND YOUR GROUND and fight for it! She taught us to stay together as a family. She taught us to never retreat and to Always Stand Your Ground. She taught us a strong sense of loyalty and duty to each other and life of the community. She taught us what honor and virtue is: to Stand Your Ground in the face of what seems to be overwhelming force. We stand to embrace our destiny and we are at peace with ourselves. Molon lave is as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago!
