listen, folks. you wanna know what’s something amazing to do? something bucket list worthy? well, i’ll tell ya. it’s getting to stand beside and touch the Berlin Wall.
the wall came down 24 years ago, and I remembering watching coverage on tv, not understanding the magnitude of the event, but understanding that a new level of peace had entered our world. but there are parts of it that remain. and today, in the freezing cold air, i stood there. i put my hand on the graffitied wall, and felt years of history & heartache shoot through me. it was indescribable. i was in awe.
that is a moment i will never forget. ever.
It’s always the small people who change things. It’s never the politicians or the big guys. I mean, who pulled down the Berlin wall? It was all the people in the streets. The specialists didn’t have a clue the day before. ~ Luc Besson
peace, courage, & tolerance.
