Greece

If you are following the international news, you already know that there is a lot of social unrest during the last year in Greece. I am 35 years old, and I don’t remember Greece being so close to self-destruction. Maybe things were as bad during the ’60s and early ’70s, dunno.

It pains me to see Greece being so close to an implosion, but to be truthfully honest, I expected it to, for years. There is so much corruption at every level of the government and press, and so much narrow minding from most of the citizens too, that the country just doesn’t move anymore. For every good thing the Greek life has to offer, there are two or three other things that kill any potential for growth. And of course, the current state of the world economy doesn’t help one bit.

I love my home, but unfortunately, I expect much worse to come. I just hope that the country will eventually rebound after an upcoming, possibly major, turmoil. I pray that this turmoil I am mentioning here will never happen, but I am by nature pretty pessimistic, so there you go.
