The Berlin Wall

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall (Berliner Mauer in German). It was a memorable event that symbolized the fall of communism and the freedom of the Germans. The indestructuble "Iron Curtain" was finally torn down and the East and West Berlin was finally reunited. The late Pope John Paul II had an influence regarding this matter as his beloved home Poland was part of this "blockade". Truly, peace and freedom is possible if someone will act now.
