Fifty Years Ago...

...tomorrow the Berlin Wall went up. Unbelievable what some people think about it.

And I didn't know Angela Merkel grew up on the east side of that wall!
"“This event is important to me because it has so much to do with my own life,” Merkel, who grew up in East Germany, said in a video podcast from July 23 posted on her website. “I couldn’t visit my aunt; I couldn’t visit my cousins. That affected my whole life.”"
Can you imagine living in the same city but unable to visit your relatives who live on the other side of an unscalable wall?
