The days of National Anniversaries are an occasion to remember that our ancestors, when faced with challenges, coped with heroic deeds..
These actions should be our guide to similar challenges to find a way out of difficult situations.
On the 28th of October 1940, The Greek people lived in an intensely divisive climate, had recently experienced the Asia Minor Catastrophe and a Global Economic Crisis. He knew, that he would surely face Italy's superior military opponent.
That is why he was properly prepared to take full advantage of his advantages, in the great battle with the armies of the Italian dictator Mussolini.
The Greek put aside his differences, he met the role assigned to him by history, and Evzonas together with the Woman of Pindos with the support of all from the rear, repulsed the invaders and within three months managed to occupy almost the entire Northern Epirus.
The Boeotian soldiers were among the first to shoot the Italians and one of the first to parade through Korytsa.
The women of the villages of Voio were among the first to ignore the weather conditions, the supplies were used to assist in the struggle of the Greek Army.
The historical records record the heroism of our soldiers and the blood tax paid by our place for the occupation of the Morava-Ivan mountains (hill 1878) where young men from every corner of Voio breathed their last. The positive result came with solidarity and proper preparation.
This is the message of October 28th 1940. On the 28th of October 2020, Greece is facing two enemies. One is known here 1.000 years from the Eastern region.
The second enemy is different, is invisible, is a pandemic that forces us to celebrate today in a different way, to see the meaning of the day more clearly.
Boio is living even more intensely the intense economic crisis that has been covering our homeland for ten years and immigration is stripping it of its children.. As Greeks with the right preparation, with solidarity and having confidence in our Armed Forces, to our scientists we will pass these storms as well.
Ως Βοϊάτες θα πρέπει να δούμε έγκαιρα κάθε ευκαιρία που μας παρουσιάζεται, για να την πιάσουμε από τα μαλλιά, με σχεδιασμό να την αξιοποιήσουμε σωστά, προκειμένου να ξυπνήσει στα παιδιά μας η αισιοδοξία και να θελήσουν να εξαντλήσουν κάθε προοπτική να επιστρέψουν και να ριζώσουν στον τόπο τους ,το ηρωικό Βόιο.
