Tearing Down the Berlin Wall!

Fifty years ago his weekend, the Berlin Wall was erected by the puppet soviet state of East Germany.  Unless you are over sixty five or are a history buff, you may not understand the tensions that existed then that had many observers feel we could be on the brink of war with the Soviet Union.  I lived through this troubling time as a student at Cambridge University in England, and remember well crossing over the Berlin Wall that was built by the East Germans 50 years ago this weekend.  Check out my new column that will take you back with me to 1961.  You can read the column by Clicking Here or by going to the flashing red box above.

Also below are two videos of Presidents Kennedy and Reagan at the Berlin Wall.  Kennedy calls for freedom and Reagan demands that the wall come down.
