Intro: Good evening to all friends. I would like to thank Mrs Tampouri for the honour to ask me to participate in her personal creative efforts ,and all of you who honorably are present in this event.
I would like to read an article of mine which I wrote it 4 years ago,on 21-03-2008 to be exact and it has proved to be prophetic for every day we face up facts and events hardly we could imagine decades ago could happen in our world and in Greece.
The title of this article is "The Sympligades Stones/Clashing Rocks of Greek reality"
But still are there, waiting patiently for their turn to talk, react, and create.
Just a little spark ignites a fire.
History has always been inscripted by ordinary people, whom probably we have never acknowledged , but they do exist in us, because history can not be exterminated.
People of modern Greece are tired by the morbidity, corruption and seeking for something "anew", a hopeful change.
This "anew" is not related to political parties, with the outdated social fabric. On the contrary this anew is related to the substance of the events.
Those who insist on colouring changes in our society, simply perpetuate the maintenance, the old way of life, merely because they ultimately depend on this old way of life.
How to justify their existence on the other hand?
The old scene is shattered and no longer fits to the new one prepared to come into surface.
Changes in a society require sacrifices and insight, faith and desire for the best.
As citizens we should look for the quality, the preservation of our culture, the regeneration of our society, unity, love for the ideals, values, our over-crumbled confidence, but also seek for the disappearance of mistrust and arrogance.
We- as a nation- at least love people who are compiling this nation and stop seeing in a ulterior and one –eyed way.
The changes come from within, when people believe in improvement and our evolution.
As a nation if we do not believe in us, it’s difficult for other nations to believe in us.
I consider it of great importance that we should re-evaluate the conditions and actions we have to undertake.
