The Wall #haiku


I never saw the Berlin wall. I do remember when it came down and was happy. I was 9 and my school teacher told a story about a wall that was built in one night. He didn’t talk about a city split in half  or the political ramifications; he just told us that he woke in the morning and could no longer visit his dad.

  1. That was a crazy time in history. Such tension. Unfortunately, that’s been replaced by other craziness. I guess it’ll keep going till we’re all done – for good!

  2. I clearly remember the day we were told it had come down, something no-one believed would ever happen. I went to Berlin for the Pink Floyd concert “The Wall” a concert they had said they’d only perform again the day the Berlin Wall came down. It was incredible. The atmosphere is something I’ll never forget. Never have I experienced the presence of hope so strong that you could almost reach out and touch it with your hands.
