United States President Barack Obama’s visit to Athens was closely monitored, however, there was one “secret speech” that took place far from the lights of publicity. The meeting he had with members of the United States Embassy in Greece and their families was possibly the most moving. A casual president met the embassy employees and their children up close and shared personal moments.
The small ceremony took place at the luxury resort, Astera Vouliagmeni, where Obama stayed during his visit to Greece. During a brief address, he thanked the embassy workers and gave a brief motivational speech. His only request was for people to refrain from selfies.
