The Fall of the Berlin Wall - 20th Anniversary

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall. I can recall President Reagan in 1987 saying with such conviction "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall." I remember the day the wall came down, as many of us do. I was sitting on the edge of my chair with tears streaming down my face. Even then, in my youth, though incredibly moved I really couldn't grasp the enormity of that moment. For those of you who missed it 20 years ago, see it now.
