Is it possible to get a nice scene out of destruction? The answer is yes. This is a burned forest somewhere in the Greek mainland. As the full Moon rises behind the dead trees, I can only hope that from this soil, new trees will grow and some day I will return here with my beloved ones to have fun on a beautiful forest. Fires consume every year large forests here in Greece with huge consequences in the national economy and the quality of life in general. Why is this happening? Is the human greed the main reason, or perhaps ignorance and indifference? Whatever the reason may be we have to try harder if we want our children to inherit a better world.
