Richard von Weizsäcker, an elderly German statesman who served as Governing Mayor of West Berlin (1981-1984) and President of Germany (1984-1994), is celebrating his 90th birthday. I remember him as the dignified president of my youth, being a honest politician and a strong democrat. He is known for his famous speeches and his initiative in 1985¹ to finally understand the lost WW2 less as a defeat than the liberation from nazi terror and new chances. He is a man of the same category as Helmut Schmidt.
I read he is very well and still doing sports. I wish you health, luck and hope you will continue to influence the german, european, and even world politics with your wisdom.
