I’m sure many of you are horrified at the latest attack by terrorists on our civilization, this time in Berlin. At the beginning of this month, my wife Marie and I visited that very Christmas market several times, as it was just down the block from our hotel where we were staying on business.
For Marie and I, this was our third brush with terrorism.
Happy German-American Day!
October 6, 2016
Happy Day of German Unity! Today marks the 26th anniversary of the unification of East and West Germany. Although the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989 symbolically united East and West Germany, the Treaty of Unification, signed by both states in August 1990, became effective on October 3, 1990. Tag der Deutschen Einheit, or the Day of German Unity, is a national holiday in Germany with official celebrations in a different city each year. This year, the celebrations take place in Dresden.
