1980s / Berlin Wall Topples 1989
I never thought I'd live to see it happen, but it did happen--20 years ago today. The Berlin Wall, the most egregious symbol of the Cold War and communist oppression in eastern Europe, ceased to be a barrier on November 9, 1989. Over the next three days, joyful Germans on both sides of the wall attacked it with picks, shovels, bulldozers, and their bare hands until it was reduced to rubble. Ronald Reagan said it best: 'When people have the freedom to choose, they choose freedom.'
