Another November phenomenon/celebration/remembrance came my way this year and this is the “Fall of the Berlin Wall.”

Looking back: I know exactly where I was in 1989 –  that was 20 years ago when the news came that the wall separating West Germany and East Germany crumpled into the ground.

I knew the story behind the curtain. But the most obvious part was that,  it was not the military might  nor the coalition of the multinational armies, nor the mother of all bombs  brought the Berlin Wall down but  it was the “Peoples’ Courage” who had enough with “THEIR”  B.S.

So in one voice they chanted, “ENOUGH! IS “ENOUGH!
Lets bring this wall down!

Just like that, the wall fell down together with the Iron Curtain…
“They” said, it was the end of the Cold War.

The exodians blog commemorates  the “20th ANNERVERSARY OF THE FALL of the BERLIN WALL!”  HOOWAH!

In the same token:
