It has been a while since I last posted on this blog page. A lot has happened and I do hope you had a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS and continue having a HAPPY NEW YEAR! (Yep, it has been that long)
I have talked about the December 19th terror attack in Berlin on the other BerlinBrigade.com social media channels but I do want to take a moment to remember the victims. You will always be in our thoughts.
Recently, I listened to the December 24, 2016 podcast episode of THIS WEEK IN GERMANY and in it the host talk about the one thing that surprised him about the aftermath of the attack. The one thing was the resiliency of the citizens of Berlin and how they were not to be stopped by this single event. All I could say when I heard that is “tell me something I didn’t know.”
Anyone that spent any time in Berlin from 1945 to 1994, knows first hand the citizens of that GREAT CITY are a UNIQUE people. They have had to deal with the Second World War, the aftermath of the war, the numerous blockades of Berlin by the Soviets, the Berlin Airlift, the construction of the Berlin Wall, and the list goes on and on. Yet, through all that the citizens of Berlin come out of it unscathed, a little worse for the wear but unscathed nonetheless.
Now we are into the second month of 2017 and life is back to BERLIN NORMAL and with the start of the BERLINALE just days away it will be another interesting time. Of course, Berlin will do the 67th International Berlin Filmfestival / 67 Internationale Filmfestspiele Berlin with that unique Berlin grace, style, and wonder!
OH, TO BE IN BERLIN ONE MORE TIME….
Thanks for your time,
