I am Georgian. My name is Anastasia. In ancient Greek my name means “reviving”. Georgia is even more ancient and beautiful. There live many different nationalities on it. And each corner of this land is improbably beautiful.
Since ancient times the earth gave to Georgia the best grapes, of what experienced wine makers made the premium Georgian wine. The Georgian songs were always melodious, the Georgian dances - exciting, the Georgian feasts - impressing, and the Georgian earth - proud.
The beauty and pride of the Georgian land were described by its great writers: Shota Rustaveli, Galaktion Tabidze and Ilia Chavchavadze. And the voice of Georgian singer Hamlet Gonashvili is the original reflexion of the pulse of the Georgian earth. Day by day the beautiful cities and edges of Georgia give love and heat of hospitality to thousand tourists.
Unfortunately, wars and civil strife have separated from Georgia several regions. The people of Abkhazia, Ossetia and Georgia have spilt a lot of blood, mothers of these sacred lands have lost their brave sons. But before all this these lands were called with one name – Georgia.
In my country people like to repeat a saying: force is in unity. If I could just realize the meaning of my name, I would revive the territorial integrity of my land. I would revive the peace and friendship on each plot of the Georgian land. And on it would spill the tears of happiness and not of sorrow and Georgian wine, instead of blood.
