Berlin Wall Fall Anniversary

This is a bit late but I just caught it. 15 years ago last week, on Nov. 9, 1989, the Berlin Wall fell. I mention this for two reasons. First, I can remember watching this happen on TV and asking my parents what was going on and why it was important. (I didn't get satisfactory answers until a few years thereafter.) Second, I've been to Berlin and seen many areas of the city and many sections of still-standing wall. An amazing place! I highly suggest you check out Berlin if you're ever in the neighborhood.
