At a time when the worst nightmares would like to nail us to our fears, to our weaknesses: this is the time to dream. And to fight of the realisation of our dreams, which are also the fairest and most pragmatic answers to the challenges of our time.   There are times when an entire generation is called upon to prove itself equal to the challenges of history. We are living one of these moments: let us reform the Union to unite Europe.
