In 1989, I was living in Germany when the Berlin Wall came down. This week in 1961 over a period of several days, the wall was first erected to keep freedom away from communist-controlled East Berlin. May we never forget this history. Nothing more dramatizes the fall of mankind than this wall. Nothing more causes one to pause than the taking down of that wall. Liberation can prevail. May other parts of the world that are in conflict learn from this wall.

    Walls are not always good things. Some divide, some keep others out. Our country considered a wall between us and Mexico to stop the influx of Mexican citizens, like the Great Wall of China. Walls in this day and age mean nothing though. Too much technology will always “pass through” walls.
