(never mind GR, if i may suggest, you don't have to comment to the posts he writes)

My life has been not normal. It never has been it seems. My only regret is that i have no friends from childhood, and while there may be thousands of people who will have a fond memory of me, i have always understood that when people come to me it is as a last resort. It is a hard life knowing you are alone except for those who have no one, else. In any case, from an early age, i learned, "the way", and though i am not religious, not a good Christian as i've been told, i serve Lovingly.

Indeed, caring for those who cannot care for themselves, dead or ill, is a challenge, and it takes grace. In my mind that lady you call sister is a hero, remember that, if you say, "i couldn't do what she does", that more loving be, to her. Few will take the time to think about the work, how hard it is on her, except perhaps her colleagues who are in the same boat. A simple recognition goes a long way in such a heart.

It is a state of mind to serve. Fear God, i say, there is nothing else to fear, only to overcome.


...but i do go on, trying to make conversation.

I was well liked by everyone who ever met me, and for many years I took participated in an extensive old school family, but my heart calls me for more than the exuberance of a gang. I live to do "the work" in my modest way, but though I may write, I feel inadequate without the ability to perform miracles, they are not necessary except in extreme circumstances, the dream world I live in is generally safe and secure, and pleasant enough, when bored I like to philosophise and speculate on the latest theories of everything, if this is not service then what is?

...you can learn a lot from those at the margins of society; there are two sides to a binomial curve.

...i don't mind to say i live in a house, and although at one point in my life i was homeless, i am homeless, my home was taken away from me, we all know that story i suppose.

Funny that, that's exactly what Akinci said to Ananstasides and his team of cronies. Only in this case we all know what they were about to receive.

GRRRRboy, you know you are not allowed to repeat verbatim in a public forum everything your nurses say don't you? For this first time violation I sentence you to spend the night at our Kurupetos specially made cell.
Let's see if you can walk after that. :lol: :lol: :lol:

It started as a charity initiative by someone who grew up with a sick mother, no father, in total poverty, at a time there was no welfare in Cyprus. The guy was working at a radio station and did this 48(?) hour broadcast every year to collect money for children with special needs.
The initiative was later adopted by some Banks on the condition they would keep the original name. It's not a radio broadcast anymore.
I will try find some info in English and post them later. If you can read Greek, then google "ραδιομαραθώνιος"
