Dearest friends and companions on this crazy and difficult trip!
Things are tough!
What a dark way of starting a message!
We were downtown the other day and our hearts broke at the sight of the centre.
Cinemas where we spent happy years and days, watching films that only they showed. Shops with owners and employees in total despair. Buildings that we were proud of, “ornaments” of the city, where we used to take foreign friends and visitors of ours and show them.
Everything covered in ashes and black smoke!
We cannot allow all that to bring us down!
We need to reclaim our city from a bunch of idiots and incompetent losers.
We want to try and revive our city. We want to do things in our city, breathe along with it, walk along its streets and have a coffee and a “koulouri” at places that belong to all of us, not them!
To achieve that, we need you as well.
Come with us.
Share our dream, feel the heartbeat of the city of Athena, once called “Diamond in the ring of the earth”..
Don’t be just visitors here, try to become inhabitants, locals.
When all this is over, you will be proud of having contibuted to the re-construction of a city, or even a country.
See you downtown and ……EFCHARISTOUME!
We will always be there to join you.
