Society: A plea for reason during the holidays

German Chancellor Angela Merkel begs Germans to follow coronavirus restrictions in an unusually emotional appeal ahead of Christmas. She urged Germans to heed scientists’ warnings and calls for stricter lockdown measures in a passionate speech: “Europe is where it is today thanks to the Enlightenment and the belief that there are scientific findings which are real and should be followed.”

Before German Chancellor Angela Merkel was elected 2005, I was skeptical of her abilities. Nevertheless, in my book she has demonstrated exceptional, balanced and consistent leadership in the interest of the people over the course of the last 15 years and I am grateful that she has served Germany for the time that she has. And I can only chime into her plea – as hard as it might be – for everyone to stay reasonable, especially during the holidays. Let’s not give into the temptation of living in the moment for the sake of the future and actual lives.

Stay safe and healthy!
