The liberation of Berlin came only 20 years ago this past october. I remember the day the Berlin wall came down. I remember watching the news and seeing the concrete slabs being hammered down by thousands of youth. This was a wall I'd been taught about from the time I was in elementary school. On my trip this summer while in Berlin I was so touched by the history of those who suffered during the war and after. then this picture captured my attention and heart. I can't imagine being this soldier and looking into the innocent eyes of this boy with out stretched arms. I'm thankful for my freedoms.
