A reflection on a magnificent act of leadership by the people- for some inspiration
Below is Brandenburger Tor, Berlin, where I lived for 1978-1980 in the Cold War. I visited a month after 9 November 1989, when the people of West and East Berlin united to pull down the wall between the two halves of the city. This event became the most majestic date in my lifetime. When I visited Berlin again in 2016, I went back and forth under this Gate at least a hundred times and couldn't stop crying for the joy of freedom.
