36878 - With the will power

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athena Kehagias

– I want to come as well.
– But you’re only little.
– You were little then as well.
– It was our duty then.
– And what is it for us?
– It’s part of history.
– Isn’t this the History you want me to learn about at school?
– Yes it is!
– Then why don’t you want me to to live through it?
– I thought you were indifferent …
– Because I’m little?
– Because the curriculum subject would be hard for you.
– But this is all about action, it’s regarding life itself.
– You’re right.
– Will you let me come too?
– I can not deprive you of history, my child.
– Otherwise it would’ve been an act of barbarism.
