Breaking Down The Wall

This November marks 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall.

25 years ago, Germans from both East and West Berlin finally toppled a barrier that separated their nation. It was a hindrance that constricted the freedom of movement between both sides for more than two decades. Families and lovers that were once separated have been reunited in bittersweet tears, in remorse of all the years and lives lost. At the same time, there was a spark of celebration in the air as everyone came pouring out into the streets at midnight.

It was a lot to take in; to be able to take a first look at the other side and to finally know that it is possible to cross over without harm. Finally, Germans all over the country were able to begin experiencing a different life and culture on ‘the other side’, all within the now proudly reunited populace.

One can imagine the elation to be enormous.

The destruction of the wall eliminated a socio-political, physical, and mental hurdle. The Wall, a hated obstacle to human dignity that it once was, is now no longer there to cast a grim shadow on freedom. This liberation caused a shift of consciousness within the European community, and consequently everywhere around the world.

Fast forward to the present, the Information Age in which Web 2.0 is the current platform of basically everything and anything we human beings do in our daily lives today.
