The Mighty Memnon -The Ethiopian King

THE MIGHTY MEMNON: He is presented in the Aethiopius. However, doing a study on him, he is in a lot more places than one can believe. Memnon was a king of Ethiopia who fought in the Trojan war against Achillies. In this post, I want to share what and who Memnon represents. Many say that, it is just a mythology story. It is far more than a story. He ( Memnon ) name literally means ' Immortal'. He would be a symbol like 'Superman' 'Batman', 'Spider Man', and 'Hercules' would be to all who know them in America and around the world. His fame goes pass other great kings of old.

His ethics goes beyond 'Saint Nick ' Santa Claus' and his fame is legendary among the ancient Greek writers who many study and admire. Memnon is an Ethiopian, a name that means 'Burnt face people' to the Greeks. He was raised to Godhood because he was a righteous moral king. The Greeks called the Ethiopians, the 'Blameless Ethiopians. Memnon was the king of the blameless people.

His fighting skills in the Pan Kau Rau Shen is legendary. It was said by the Greeks that even Achillies ( who could not be beaten by any mortal man and with Demi -God like abilities) could not defeat Memnon. I say all this to say that, Memnon is a representation of ethics, morality, and warriorism to the Africans. So much so that he is remembered in Thebes. A statue was built by AmunHotep and later called 'The Colossi of Memnon. Rameses the Great ( II) who fought and overcame his enemies in battle was called 'The Young Memnon'. Learn. Grow and Prosper.

The conditional work is always the lost cause and that can be better of the usage of the heroism and can be better usage of the section. It is used to keep it from the free zone and it has the nature of the falcon.

That article is so interesting and makes a very nice image in my mind. That is very much helpful in nominating the board of directors.
