Our Prayers are With Our Greek Brothers & Sisters in this Horrible Time!
Greece is burning -- not just a few fires, but hundreds of fires set all over the country. Estimates are that fires are burning in nearly half of Greece. The American news media is pretty much ignoring the magnitude of devastation and destruction, for reasons that only they understand. Yesterday saw 87 new fires in Greece, alone. And then today, a magnitude 5.0 earthquake hit the fire-ravaged south of Greece, although no deaths or injuries (Thank God) have been reported.
It IS arson, about that,there is likely no question. But is it "political terrorism"? And if so, by whom? Those questions have yet to be satisfactorily answered, although a number of anonymous "suspects" appear to be in custody. I have a very hard time believing that "Greeks", of any political persuasion -- Right or Left-- would actually do this to their own country even though some politicians in the September election bid, have been quick to exploit the situation and point fingers. Whoever organized this horrific holocaust, may they be brought to justice swiftly. And may those "pointing fingers" turning into "working hands" helping those in need in this terrible time.
Our Prayers go out to our Greek Brothers & Sisters in this horrible time. May God Bless and Protect You!
