Nai or Oxi, the arrogant and incompetent political leadership must go. The question is whether sufficient vision and expertise will step forward and be elected to lead Greece from this serious state of chaos and malfunction.
I pray, "Yes they Can," particularly for my many hard-working, dedicated family members who are already struggling in Crete, Athens and elsewhere. Perhaps they can return to family villages where self-sufficient lifestyles still abound with olive trees, prolific gardens, diary goats, beehives, and the ancient knowledge of what can be harvested from the hillsides.
As we await today's referendum results, I cannot conclude more aptly than Kostandaras:
"Throughout their history, the Greeks have fought hardest when all seemed lost. We won so many wars, overcame so many coups and foreign occupations to achieve the stability that now — in peacetime — is threatened. With so much at stake, we will soon see whether today’s Greeks are worthy of their ancestors."
