We’re all foreigners almost everywhere
Apropos to the discussion on who is a “foreigner,” some years ago I was in Germany visiting the place where Johann S. Bach had his first position as an organist.
As I came to the church, I saw graffiti on the wall opposite the main entrance. It read in German: “Foreigners Out.”
Just inside the door of the church there was a large banner on which was written in five languages: “We are all foreigners almost everywhere!”
