No doubt you’ve lost count how many times you’ve read a report or an article, or listened to a news correspondent that begins his broadcast with the line “in these unprecedented times”. And yet, there’s no better phrase to fit this modern day manifestation of biblical cleansing. We’re all in this together, and yet, we’re alone at the same time. Every cloud has a silver lining, every sweet has its sour so in time to come we will look back and realise that some good has come of this. Difficult to get our heads around that statement right now when people are falling sick and dying all around us, but this industry is not led by individuals who throw in the towel and say to hell with it, I give up. This is a knock-back with powerful mind altering effects for sure, but the glass industry is proactive and will come through these dark days armed with more knowledge and more power, it will be like the rebirth of the industry, we go again, refreshed, refocused, redefined and re-armed….with renewed purpose. As we’ve said before in IGS, we will make the next chapter our best chapter, then all the talk will be about what we resolved tomorrow.
“Don’t be under any illusion, don’t stay there and think that everything is gonna work out, that the powers and all the forces that be are going to find a solution to make life better for you and things will sort themselves out on the wheels of inevitability. If we wait for it to work itself out, it will never be worked out……we’ve got to keep on keeping on in order to instigate that positive change”. – Dr.Martin Luther King.
