I care nothing for flags. I care deeply for the notion of a Cyprus of Cypriots, where what kind of Cypriot you may be is insignificant when placed next to the commonality of just being Cypriot. Of a Cyprus where you can come from another place, be it France, Nigeria or Peru and by time and affinity, with the sea and the mountains, the trees and the flowers, the lizards and the goats and the stray cats, the people and the customs, the habits both good and bad, you can become Cypriot too. Where to be Cypriot is a state of mind and feeling of heart.

That's because as a foreign-soil-born foreigner, you want to feel *at home* and that is not possible for you when you are reminded how much you (turks) have stolen, how much you (turks) owe to the native Greeks that have made Cyprus a special place.

I am of this place, even though I was not born here. I am of this place even though I am not Greek and I am not Turkish and I am not Marionite or Armenian. I am of these mountains, the Troodos as much as the Pentadaktylos, of this sea, of this place. I am Cypriot. Like my father before me and his before him going back generations. I lament those who are of this place yet define themselves and others by some other place and the damage that has done and does do to this place and the people of this place, I am Cyprus and Cypriot.
