Maro Douka: The fight will be a difficult one.

Not we (who had not yet been born), but Greek society –I sense– had to wait seventy years, through struggles and ups and downs, through adventures and belied expectations, to regain our footing. 

What I mean, of course, is that after 1944 we had to wait until 2015  to pick up the lost thread. There are, however, no magic wands, and the fight will be long and difficult. We should all, therefore, learn to live as fighting citizens.
Maro Douka is a novelist
