Parnitha Forest burns


From an online acquaintance:

Greece is very hot, and I am very sad to say that Athens is now mourning the Parnitha forest (an ancient forest with trees of 2500yrs of age) that has burned down three days ago.
We are all in mourning for the death of one of the most beautiful forests in Europe.

About the forest I am crushed..... Some trees were 2000 yrs old. Some of the caves were used by ancient philosophers to teach and make offerings to the gods.
I will go tomorrow to protest in front of the parliament with thousands other people.
We should all do something about the environment.
For the children of our planet to find a planet.....
