Together, we can do it

What we need is a little optimism about the future of the country, because negativity and poor morale are the biggest enemies of growth and the stabilization of the economy.

That is not to say we should be oblivious to the very difficult circumstance of many of our fellow citizens and their suffering, because they need our support now more than ever.

However, we have to recognize that things which should have changed decades ago and are now beginning to do so, from the management of public money to clamping down on tax evasion and ending the impunity of the powerful. We need to have faith in the potential of the country, because its is huge and largely untapped.

The majority of Greeks are working hard to secure a better future for themselves and their children. This is the same thing we need to do, collectively, as a country. Together, we can do it.
