25 Years of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

25 Years of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

This year I had the chance to visit Berlin for the first time. I have friends from Germany and there was a school reunion that I was fortunate enough to attend. It was brilliant! But as I was touring the city alone, before the reunion, I just had to get up super early and make my way to where the actual wall stood. There are markings that tell the stories of people like you and me who wanted to escape. A better life, family, lovers, freedom, anything. Some made it, but many didn't.
