20 Years Ago Today...

...the Berlin wall was torn down! The shadow of soviet totalitarianism/communism has been dead for 20 years. it's hard to believe it's been that long, if feels like almost yesterday that I was in highschool German class discussing it's impact. I had planned on going to Germany to study art, but that never happened. I did make it to germany about 1 1/2 years after the wall came down.

Feiern de Mauerfall!

This one was interesting. Communist holdouts protesting against freedom.

And the speech that put things into motion.
