Hestia SMM

Hestia, the goddess of the

Hestia is a Greek goddess who the Greeks had and sort of still do believe in. She was believed to dress modestly and kindly. She was often shown wearing a veil. She was not described beautiful, but some believed that she was as beautiful as she was gentle. She was the eldest sister of Zeus and the oldest child of Cronus and Rhea.
Hestia was the sweetest, gentlest, and most generous of all the gods. She never argued with anyone. Some say that every human's fire is her fire as she watched over them. She is the goddess of the Hearth and Home and takes care of the family. Her symbol is the flame. Even though she was the goddess of the home, she refused to be married. She remained a virgin goddess.
Hestia is such a wonderful goddess because when you first find out what she is the goddess of you think it's nothing. But really it is something. She protects the home and families. She watches over them like a Christmas angel, She takes care of families and her own. Some Greeks had even carried a certain fire with them in her honor.
If Hestia could see the world today she would be very dissapointed. All this fighting and war. All the blood and tear from innocent people. And pollution and global warming! It kills the earth. And that's just the begining. Even people just in regular cities. Murder, rape, drugs, drinking, and smoking and such! It kills people, puts them in bad places, and puts them in captivity. She would be very dissapointed with everyone. Even in just homes, there are some that are pretty nice. They treat each other well and take care of each other. But some are just wrong. With cursing, drinking, hitting, and so much more fighting. Sometimes people wish that Hestia herself could be here today and put an end to all these big and small wars.
