Today I mark a personal anniversary. Forty years ago, on September 9, 1981, I began my American life. I arrived from Athens, Greece, in Columbus, Ohio, to work as an Assistant Professor of Modern Greek at The Ohio State University. I was 28 years old and had fulfilled my dream of starting an academic career. I had never been happier, and I can still fell the exhilaration. I have been grateful every single day.
