A Letter to the FT From a 21-Year-Old Greek


The cold-hearted bastards who want to rule the world should just for once realize it is not all about them. This is part of letter to the FT. We are plagued by insane politicians who are destroying our future completely.

But now I can hardly remember life before Friday night. Fear. I am terrified of tomorrow, all I now see is black. Uncertainty, leading us through our days, every remainder of hope for a brighter future being destroyed by the minute. I look at my three-year-old niece, I envy her ignorance, I envy her age. I am 21 years old and the past few days I feel tired by life. A referendum that supposedly gives me the right to define my future, seems to have taken it away.
