MY WORLD TUESDAY: A sad and black day


Dear Friends,
today was a difficult day for us - Greeks.
That's why my content won't be the hap
py one I had planned to post.
*
A young, 15 years old boy was killed by a policeman when he appeared in the middle of gunfights between the police and the anarchists who were distroying several shops around Athens.

Alexis, 15 years old

That was the first checker of the domino. Students around Greece refused to go to their schools and demostrated for the murder. Then anarchists took the occasion to distroy more buildings. The political parties demostrated too against the goverment's policy and the police's harshness.


I watch the news and I can't believe my eyes! So anger from everybody...
I feel pity for the boy and his parents...
I feel sad for the policeman - murderer- who has three chilren...
I feel sorry for the owners of the shops who waited for Christmas to work under this difficult economic crisis...
*
Chaos...! My heart is bleeding...

I read about this earlier and saw the sad pictures! I'm so very sorry and will hold good thoughts for you and your country at this time. What a sad and violent world we live in -- even harder to bear at this time of year when it is supposed to be love that we celebrate, not hate. Thank you for the info.

This has been all over our news. It is such a terrible waste, which we have also seen too much of in the UK.
Such a sad indictement of our times.

I read about the riots in the newspaper, but it's much different to actually be there. I'm sorry that this is casting a shadow on your world.

I heard the news and I thought of you and Antigoni and how this must be affecting you all. I am so very sorry that this has happened. I feel sorrow for the young boy, and for his family who has to deal with his death, for everyone involved, my heartfelt condolences for the people of Greece.

I do hope that there soon will be peace in Athens and the rest of your beautiful country. It's sad that this all happened and especially at this time of Christmas. I noticed that you are Antigoni's sister. How wonderful! You're both very lovely girls!
