This is an Example of Leadership: German Chancellor Angela Merkel Addresses the COVID-19 Pandemic to Germany

Angela Merkel addressed the German people the other day. She spoke plainly and candidly about the COVID-19 pandemic. This blog is asking people to watch this talk by one of the strongest women in the world committed to democracy and the West. This blog has deep respect for Angela Merkel. 

“Above all it is important to point out that we can only maintain our prosperity in Europe if we belong to the most innovative regions in the world.”

Angela Merkel

I am putting the dinosaur in the picture since Merkel is a scientist. 

This is a brief post. I am going to ask you to watch this speech by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The speech is in English subtitles. Merkel gave a blunt, honest and emphatic talk to the people of Germany about what is coming with COVID-19. In plain language the German chancellor explains that Germany is facing its greatest challenge since World War II. Merkel could be a case study in leadership. Direct, honest, and tells the unpleasant truth. The long time Christian Democratic Union politician in Germany will be remembered by history well. If you have studied German history as I have, you will know that she wants to be remembered in the context of Helmut Kohl.  This blogger has deep respect for Angela Merkel
