20 years ago today, the beginning of the end of Communism was marked with the fall of the Berlin Wall. It had been 2 1/2 since Ronald Reagan stood in front of that Wall and challenged Soviet President Gorbachev to, “Tear down this wall!”
It has special significance to me as my wife was born and raised in a town about 90 miles southeast of Berlin and, but for that Wall falling, we would have never been able to meet.
No one ever believed the Wall would fall in our life time and even in the days before the border opened, East Germans were still plotting, trying, succeeding, failing, and dying to get over, under or through that Wall.
Please share your memories of that day or the significance since or how it seems today we are now facing new walls of regulation, high taxes, and government mandates that seem to erode our freedoms today.
