Rigas Feraios or Rigas Velestinlis (1757?June 13, 1798) was a Greek writer and revolutionary, an eminent figure of Greek Enlightenment, remembered as a Greek national hero, the first victim of the uprising against the Ottoman Empire and a forerunner of the Greek War of Independence. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rigas_Feraios (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Make War against War for   a Warless World …

For how long, o brave young men, shall we live in fastnesses,
Alone, like lions, on the ridges in the mountains?
Shall we dwell in caves, looking out on branches,
Fleeing from the world on account of bitter serfdom?
Abandoning brothers, sisters, parents, homeland
Friends, children, and all of our kin?
….
Better one hour of free life,
Than forty years of slavery and prison

Rigas Feraios ( The Thourios war-song )
