“English Sea, the Watchtower” by Kostantis Douralas , Painting on canvas, Spatula.

Recently I asked from my 9 year old son a painting for my office. I asked for a Watch tower next to the sea. Today he brought it to me and I can surely say I am proud for him. I hope he will be lucky in his life and well spend it on the things he loves.

Greece entered WW2 at 28th of Oct 1940, after the Italians demanded surrender and Ioannis Metaxas answered “NO”. This small word was the united Greek Nation’s answer from the same moment. My grandfather was listed immediately From Koroni to Kalamata and then Athens. The first photo is from Athens (date unknown), the Second is from Albania at the 11th of Nov 1940, just 10 days after the declaration of war.

I would like to celebrate this National Day by remembering those who fought against all odds for our freedom. I hope we get inspired by them today.
