Seventy years ago the allied troops stormed Europe and started towards the end of WWII.
At the end of WWII, East Germany has created, and every company in East Germany was frozen in time. In 1989, after the wall fell and East Germany joined the West, commerce started to grow and there was a rewakening of relations.
Now here we are, 70 years later where these same companies, once blocked from the West, are producing some of the finest products around for our markets. I am not trying to belittle the price that was paid by so many during the war, but I am saying that Freedom is a beautiful thing.
And thanks to the courge of many people, over 70 years ago, I am able to be here today, to tell you that our partner, in former East Germany, is right on track for deliveries of the special German Glass Glitter for the Miss Mustard Seed Glitters, and that we should start making our first deliveries next week.
So to all the fallen, to all who we lost, to all the brave, that 70 years ago made this happen, "The Very Thought of You, Speeds Production".
