Gunther Grass' Excellent Poem Is Required Reading




In German:










To Mr. Grass:


Thank you, Mr. Grass, on behalf of the world, for having the courage 
to say what you think must be said –
(if only we all did) –
And thank you again, speaking for myself
 – that is, for a woman, a scholar, a poet, and a Jew –
because I wholeheartedly agree.








To The Almighty:


Let  there be peace, and life and joy and health, and goodness of action 
such as spring naturally from sanity and sensible thought –
O Lord,
let there be peace
upon Earth, among men, and with the quickness.






To my Gentle Readers:


Be seeing you.
