April 7, 2010 | Filed Under Travel | Leave a Comment

Ο Έλληνας έχει μια ιδιαίτερη σχέση και ερμηνεία της λέξης εθελοντισμός.

Στο πρόσφατο παρελθόν, όταν όλοι οι διεθνή κοινότητα αμφισβητούσε την δυνατότητα να διεκπεραιώσουμε τους Ολυμπιακούς Αγώνες, εμείς αποδείξαμε περίτρανα ότι μπορούμε είτε ως επίσημοι εθελοντές είτε ως ανεπίσημοι εθελοντές (απλοί πολίτες), ο καθένας με τον τρόπο του και την συμπεριφορά του (άσχετα αν την επόμενη μέρα γυρίσαμε στις “καλές γνωστές μας συνήθειες”).
