Good music is a gift to us all and gives us enjoyment through the years. For a short time we can put our worries away or at least sing about them and thereby give voice to the emotions that dwell in our hearts. I think Greeks have been blessed with a great many truly gifted musicians and singers who have been able to satisfy the deep seated need we all have for music which expresses what we feel. Tsitsanis, Panou, Doukissa, Zambetas to name only a few. They brought us together as families, as Greeks, as human beings irregardless of where we came from or where we were at a given moment. For that brief time we put aside our differences or petty squabbles while we revelled in our mutual love of the music they offerd us.
During these difficult days may we all share the treasures they left behind and may they give us the courage to face life with a smile and a song on our lips.
