Letter to the Editor: On the Problem of Guns

September 15, 2021

To the Editor:

The planet is affected by fires, floods, hurricanes. Humans have managed to destroy the Earth that we call home and now we are paying the consequences of our recklessness and indifference. This is the reality and if we do not do something even now it will be too late for everyone and especially for future generations. As if all of this is not enough, we also have the problem of guns, for which no measures have been taken. Anyone can buy a gun without strict conditions for such a thing. If I am not mistaken, a student was recently killed in his high school in North Carolina. Why are there weapons in schools? How is such a thing allowed? Every madman has access to a gun and kills whomever they please. There is a need to put an end to this, at some point we must put in mind protecting our children, ourselves, and our fellow human beings.

Mission…to Alonnisos, a TNH Documentary

O oceanic you sing and sail White on your body and yellow on your chimeneas For you're tired of the filthy waters of the harbors You who loved the distant Sporades You who lifted the tallest flags You who sail clear through the most dangerous caves Hail to you who let yourself be charmed by the sirens Hail to you for never having been afraid of the Symplegades (Andreas Empeirikos)   What traveler has not been fascinated by the Greek islands, drawn by the Sirens’ song of a traveler’s dreams? TNH and our video show ‘Mission’ marked the change of the season by transporting viewers into the heart of summer.
