I’m sure you’ve heard that today’s the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. A lot’s changed in 20 years, hasn’t it? Progress hasn’t always been forward, but it seem to me that the world has moved towards being better in those twenty years.

I remember it falling, of course, but I think the big celebration–complete with champagne*–in my family was the following year when Germany reunited.

*I also sewed a banner ‘Germany united again’ in home ec class.

Update: The Big Picture’s feature on 20 years since the fall has a lot of pretty powerful images. I recommend it.
