Where Were You 30 Years Ago?

November 9th, 2019

It stood – stark, dangerous, and ugly,  – for 28 years as the enduring symbol of a fractured Europe,  – indeed of a fractured World.  Then, with just hand tools – ordinary Berliners began to tear it down. At least 140 people were killed during those 28 years, – mostly shot as they attempted escapes.

To us old-timers,…it seems like just yesterday….before the Clintons and the Obama’s… …and it was a magic moment in World History.
