The Berlin Wall Falls

I remember vividly the images from this night back in 1989 when we saw pictures from Berlin of the dividing wall between East and West Berlin finally fall - a very visual and dramatic symbol of the collapse of the corrupt communist experiment.

It is wonderful to celebrate the reunification of Germany tonight, but also to remember other places in our world where walls still exist as affronts to human dignity. I pray for a day when the thought of building a wall between people, communities or nations is simply seen as ridiculous. Remembering the power of toppling a wall, as we are doing tonight, is a good thing.
