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.

There was once a time of Honor in our Military;  – a time long before pregnancy uniforms,  lactation rooms,  transgender reassignment policies,  or gay weddings in the post chapel…. Teenage American soldiers went forth to place their courage and their marksmanship between our Freedom and the hairy hordes of communism.
