Crisis in Greece strikes at heart


Maria Kalaitzandonakes

Greece is an old country, full of ancient history and a rich legacy of civilization. However, the recent economic collapse has taken its toll on the nation and its people.
Today in Greece, millions struggle to find employment, argue over entitlement reform and stabilize the future of the country and their families.
I spent the summer observing these conflicts firsthand, and although I have hope for Greece my summer there cemented my worries about its future.
