    I enjoyed watching the vedio of the exhibit. It brings back memories of the dramatic end of communsim. It is also a positive reminder of the power of democracy, freedom of expression, and peace. It is a reminder of the force of human history of resistance to injustice in the world.
    I am so touched by your work and grateful for all of your efforts.

  2. Not only does this video allow us to cherish the fruits that democracy bare but it also brings us back to George W. Bush’s vision of spreading democracy all throughout the world. Nations inside the periphery are still lagging behind because of the failure of their leaders to embrace democracy, the same way that the brave men and women of Soviet union did. Moreover, the Berlin wall was not only a separation barrier between East and West and good versus bad. It was a stark reminder of the horror that the world witnessed between 1939 and 1945 and the aftermath of facism, tyranny, and hate. We hope that spreading the message further encourages individuals to cherish and embrace democracy.
