History in the Making

Today Germany elected the first woman ever to be Kanzlerin – Angela Merkel was incredibly humble when she was sworn in and even though she is a conservative and I probably don’t agree with some of her policies, I can’t help but think the world is in safer hands with a woman in charge of one of the most powerful countries in Europe. A strong Europe is good for the world because it means that the US hasn’t got complete control of how “the West” acts with regard to foreign policy. After the hours long ceremony she celebrated with her family and friends and ate potato soup. How earthy is that? I wish her all the luck in the world.
