Eighteen years ago, our collective hearts skipped a beat and experienced one of those all-too-rare moments of unabashed joy and hope. The Berlin Wall, the symbol of Communist/Soviet rule of East Germany, was opened along some of its checkpoints, finally allowing East Germans to freely travel to West Germany.
They started demolishing the Berlin Wall the next day. What a sight it was! And knowing that commies (and unrepentant fellow travelers) were eating their insides made it all the more delicious. Pure, unabashed joy. Why? One word: FREEDOM. At last.
And Cuba? Where is she eighteen years later?
