Unforgettable Greece

It was August 2008, my daughter, her friend and I traveled to Athens, Greece. In the evening of the full moon, we walked up to the top of the Akropolis and waited until the moon broke into the night. During the full moon there are no lights in and around the Akropolis and it is completely dark overlooking the beautiful city of Athens. There were thousands of people from all parts of the world. The excitment was electric.

As the moon came up over the city, there was a slight breeze and a true deafening silence as no one spoke a word. We watched in awe, making our wishes silently and until the light of the moon shone its brillance upon this magnificent structure and surrounded all of us people from different countries. We all became one; we became part of something so much bigger than ourselves. The moon united us all.

It was a humbling experience that I will remember all the days of my life.
