Walls

Inspiration:  Kennedy’s visit to Berlin in 1963

Since the building of a wall is a strong topic in the 2016 U.S. presidential race, I thought it would be interesting to consider another wall that was built and taken down. I am not at all knowledgeable enough on this topic to offer an opinion and I realize there are other issues to consider in the present situation that is different that what was going on in Germany in the 1960’s. I just think it gives some perspective to consider how the Berlin Wall impacted East and West Berlin and what has happened since it has been removed.

Here are sites to provide more background information.
