To the Greeks;
As it is widely known, Greece has been having financial troubles. For years this
brilliant country has been in denial about their problems, but these past few months
reality has hit them hard. Rioting has ruined the beauty of Greece's streets and the
deaths have shattered many over the country. With Greece being so in debt, the
EU(Europe Union) is debating whether or not they should loan Greece the money they
Back here in the states, some say that the people of Greece are greedy. That
they should work for the money they need as hard as they riot for what they want.
Some say that the Greek government is spending the tax money on selfish things,
rather then paying it to those they owe. I personally don't care which is true. All I
care about is the people of Greece realizing they need help and they can't get help
with the riots.
Taking a step into a bit of history here, has it not been proved countless times
you can be peaceful when fighting for what you want? Martin Luther King Jr. proved
that fighting is not always the answer when it comes to getting your way. He proved
that you can peacefully fight, rather then kill people to get your way. With this in
mind, shouldn't Greece do the same thing?
Not to be blunt, but Greece needs money. We all do. For the people of the U.S.,
you may be wondering how Greece contributes to your well being. I mean, they are a
country in Europe, they must mean nothing, correct? Wrong. Greece is part of Europe,
the continent which we depend on for many of our imports. If one part of Europe
falls, it is bound to affect Europe as a whole. Many may think that Asia and China
rule the import world, but that is not correct. We depend on France and Germany for
many things as well, so in the long run, this will affect the United States.
