EDITOR’S NOTE: We received this letter – submitted by a Greek-American high-ranking educator in NY Public Schools to lawyers and unions – who, remembering the Greek Independence Struggle, is fighting for Freedom from mandates and other power over-reaches by the New York authorities!
Today in 1821, my Greek forefathers after 400 years of enslavement, fought for their independence, especially for their Christian Orthodox religious freedoms against the Ottoman Empire, and won.
Today in 2022, I am fighting for my life as my forefathers did, for my religious freedom and overall autonomy, this time, without swords. I am being ridiculed by egregious, clown-like politicians and sold-out judges!
What is CSA Union doing for me today, after 22 years of service in the DOE of which 17 years I have served as a school administrator for the city of NY? I guess being a millionaire ballplayer and entertainer is more important than leading a community school where children grow, learn and thrive; and this admin was loved and adored by all. Ironically, the people that were terminated by Mayor Adams were at their posts throughout the pandemic and never missed a day. I am no exception, as I worked the whole year including summer school 2021. I had no fear…, my Lord says:
Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
I want you all to know, besides Greek Independence, it’s also, more importantly, the Annunciation of our Holy Lady Theotokos, the Virgin Mary.
Where did I spend my morning? Instead of working in a school, I went to church to light candles and pray. I lit the biggest candle for our Mayor, hopefully, the Holy Spirit will move and inspire him to do right by his brothers and sisters, the NY City workers, who will NOT inject themselves with poisonous, experimental jabs!
Please let Mayor Adams know, this is unacceptable and an embarrassment for all unvaccinated city workers, it’s a slap in the face! If we are so unsafe to enter our buildings, as if we are carrying the Black Plague, then give us a pension buyout, or give us our jobs and let us return to work!
Please let him know that on our behalf.
