Greek Youth From Mati Send Message to California in Response to Fires

I got an amazing message today I the inbox of one of my social media accounts, from a girl named Afrodite who lives in Mati, Greece.

It’s not too long ago that Greece suffered from catastrophic fires, similar to what California is experiencing right now. Youth from Mati, one of the areas in Greece hit hardest by the fires, got together to send a message to everyone in California.

Check out the message below.

«I feel you California!

I have gone through the loss of my hometown, a place where I created my memories and lived my dreams.

I have felt what it’s like to look around me and not recognize surroundings that were once familiar.

I have felt how it is to be wondering «why?». «And now what?». To wonder what the future will hold . . . or if I can ever even start again.. I have experienced losing everything I took for granted!

But let me tell you , you have to stay strong California!

Because even though you will be feeling, disappointment, bitterness, sorrow and anger -you will find something; and that something will keep you upright ..You will realize that you are not alone, cause many are there to support you.

You will succeed… And by working together, your “Paradise” will rise again.

I feel you California!»

All of us from California thank you very much, your kind words mean a lot to all of us. 💙🇬🇷
