20 years ago today…

Where did the years go?
20 years ago, the Berlin Wall fell. This means, now, that more of my life has been spent without the Berlin Wall than it was with that edifice in place.
The Berlin Wall fell as I was beginning college, and making my way in the world. It was an exciting time and I can’t imagine it wasn’t even more exciting, there. I have a friend who had been to East Germany before the Wall fell.
From his stories, its clear that the adage that “the past is a different country” is definitely true.
And I still need to see the classic movie about the fall of the wall, “Goodbye Lenin!”
