‘We don’t want the old, we don’t care about the old’: Diogenes and his family’s dedication to Greek culture
It was the year of the Greek tragedy.
Diogenis was a 17-year-old boy who had been thrown into a sea of tears after a failed attempt to escape from the prison of his home country.
Diogenesis’s father, a Greek citizen, was killed in an attack on a Greek naval base, leaving Diogenias orphaned.
Diogens father was an atheist, but the family did not consider themselves a “religious” family.
As Diogenys family moved from house to house, the church he attended was gradually stripped away, while a local church was converted into a museum and school.
Diogenic, who is of Greek and Romanian descent, told me that he and his siblings were not religious.
He said that he had no idea that there were people in Greece who were atheists, or even non-religious.
In fact, they were not atheists at all.
They were just trying to make a living, and that is what they did.
“The problem is, we are still living in a society that is completely hostile towards atheists,” Diogenés family told me.
“We don`t want the [pastor] of the church who is a priest or a pastor, or the president of the university or the minister of the state or the bishop or the chief justice, to be a Muslim.
We don`tray to them, we would never have tolerated that, we wouldn’t have given them any space to do that.”
The Diogenetic family moved to Athens after Diogenís father died.
Diogeneis parents lived in a house in a small neighborhood, with one bedroom and one bathroom.
“I had to take care of all the children,” Diogeneís mother, Anna, told BBC Sport.
“My husband had to do all the laundry and all the dishes.
We were poor, we had no money, we didn`t have a job.”
When Diogen’s parents died, they left him the family property and gave it to their son.
“They did that in a very religious way, and they gave us everything that was important to us,” Anna Diogenos said.
“Everything we had was given to us.
I felt so blessed, so happy.
My children were given a good upbringing.”
Diogenesian’s parents lived separately from their sons.
“When my parents died I was left with a house that belonged to my grandfather,” Anna said.
She said that she felt like she had a responsibility to her son.
She also felt like her son had to inherit that house and her father had to give it to him.
“It was not just a piece of land, it was the foundation of our family,” Anna told me, referring to her father’s property.
“As soon as I moved to Greece, my husband, father and I had to move into a house.
I moved in with him, and he gave me everything he had, but I had not given my father anything.
“Because he was not a Christian. “
If we had not left the house, I think my father would have had a hard time living there,” Anna added.
“Because he was not a Christian.
He was not an Orthodox Christian, but he had a strong faith.
Anna and Diogens parents lived a simple life, living off the government assistance she received. “
His faith was so strong, I had no problem at all, he was my son, I would never leave him.”
Anna and Diogens parents lived a simple life, living off the government assistance she received.
Anna Diogeneos said that her husband had worked for the government for four years, but that he did not earn enough to pay the rent.
“He worked in a factory in the area, and the factory was run by the government, and if they gave him anything he had to work for them.
I never felt that I could do anything for my father,” Anna explained.
“In my mind, he is the son of my father.
He is a very good man, and so I did everything I could, and my husband was also doing everything that he could, because we lived on the government aid.”
Diogene’s mother said that the Diogenesi family moved back to Athens when Diogeni was 10 years old.
“You see, the Diogenees family, we did not have the money to go back to Greece,” Anna says.
“And when we came to Athens, we wanted to stay in the country because we did everything that we could.
I thought that we had nothing to worry about, and we were really happy.”
In 2014, Anna was elected to the Greek Parliament.
She was one of the first Greek MPs to publicly criticise the government of the time.
“Our family was not happy, and it was really difficult for us to deal with the issue,” Anna tells me. “[But
