today marks the 20th anniversary of one of the most significant events in world history of the 20th century. certainly one of most important of my lifetime.
and it was a seemingly smooth transition from communism to freedom for those of us out west.
apparently so easy that some are not even phased by the significance of this day in 1989.
but it wasn’t easy.
and it’s not little.
there are much more eloquent and relevant articles than anything i could write all over the interwebz that i will leave for your perusal [ie bbc’s, cnn’s, and a fascinating piece over at FP] . i just implore you to remember how awesome this is.
