multikulti is dead. long live multikulti.

the emporer has no clothes on.
only now (a significant german) someone has said it.

angela merkel declared yesterday that multikulti has 'utterly failed'. it seems to me that germany is coming to something of a crossroads. I'm praying for germany.
for eyes to see where they've come from, the place they're at now, each path that opens ahead and to see the only one on whose shoulders the government will rest and whose increase will never end.
I'm praying for reflection and honest discussion about what culture - identity - germany should have.
and most of all, I'm praying for leaders, for a new generation to emerge who can lead the country in the right path, not returning to fear and violence, but uniting with faith and vision.
