09 November 1989 – ‘I…I Can Remember…Standing By The Wall…’

If YOU do not tell the tale of who caused the fall of the Berlin Wall and why it is important that the wall was brought down, you are failing future generations & aiding in their likely enslavement to the very totalitarianism that the Cold Warriors fought to free people from. Young people will not learn this history in school or in the media, it is up to YOU.

It fell, not because the USSR allowed it…
