Things have caught fire here and there these days, you see.
We have nothing to fear but the refugees themselves. Just kidding, Leute (people). Sort of.
Repeating the mantra “Wir schaffen das,” (“We will manage,”) German Chancellor Angela Merkel is defending her strategy on handling the refugee crisis against growing criticism.
“Let’s just assume we all would declare that we will not manage it — then what?” she asked host Anne Will in a primetime, one-on-one TV interview on Wednesday night.
Unlike critics, “I actually have to work out this problem,” says the German chancellor.
Ich habe einen Plan.
PS: The word crisis originates from the Greek word krisis, which means “decisive moment.” Krisis like circle? As in turnaround? I haven’t seen one here yet.
