The refugees continue to arrive, from Syria, from Afghanistan, from Africa, and cries in Europe grow louder and louder to refuse entry to those who flee from poverty, war, and hatred. One person in Europe has risen to meet the challenge-Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany. She insists that each European Union nation absorb some refugees. In other words, spread the mass of people around and ensure that no single nation is confronted with the need to do it all.
However, voices grow louder and louder, even in Germany. Right wing conservatives echo the words of Donald Trump to build walls blocking entry of those seeking some form of peace and security. The outlook for these refugees does not look bright. It is simply a matter of time before Merkel must bow to the voices of hate. Ironically, Germany, and other western European nations, NEED immigrants since their low birth rates require more young workers to handle increased old age pension payments.
Frankly, the situation does not bode well for those in pain and fear.
