Αλέξανδρος Γρηγορόπουλος

It is with sadness that I have to post about the death of a 15-year old son of Greece this morning.  Alexandros Grigoropoulos was shot by a police officer in the area of Exarchia in Athens on late Saturday night.  A senseless loss of life, and a vulnerable period for my beloved Motherland.  The protests and riots that have followed the news of this young man's killing reflect a passion and anger that touches upon something much deeper in the Greek psyche.  I would have rather posted about the wonderfullness of baklava, but I cannot ignore this cowardly act. 

Agaphte mou file Alexandre, kalo taxidi.....
