Agiel Posted November 11, 2014 Share Posted November 11, 2014 (edited) I see no reason why not all (well... *most*) of us can agree that the peaceful re-unification of a country after nearly a half-century is unequivocally a good thing? I watch footage of the celebrations that fateful night and images of the "Lichtgrenze" commemorating it and it just speaks to me. Yes there is "Ostalgie" and some economic hardship in the aftermath but I would bet my life every single German who was there at the Wall that night would say at the end of their lives they would do it all over again and that they'd never miss that opportunity. It makes me hope that in spite of all the pain that would follow that I live to see the same thing happen to the Korean DMZ: http://english.kookmin.ac.kr/site/about_kmu/newNhot/press.htm?mode=view&num=8 Edited November 11, 2014 by Agiel 1 Quote "Hommage à la résistance et peu importe quelle soit vaine, Aux sacrifices qui ont le goût du sang gâté, À nos camarades, on n'oubliera jamais!
