Musicians of the ERT orchestras, suspended last month when the government shut down public broadcasting, have been plunged into deep mourning by the suicide of a player’s father. The father of Dimitris Theologiti had begun to show signs of depression after the orchestra was shut down. Yesterday, he plunged into the main reservoir of the town of Amorgos. We have been informed by members of the orch.
Suicides are rising sharply in Greece. The Hellenic Statistical Authority interval reports 1,245 suicides in the three years 2009-2011. From end 2011 to August 2012, there were 3,124 suicides or suicide attempts.
A person who sees children or grandchildren without food may decide there is no other way.
Our thoughts, prayers and tears are with the Theologiti family.
