Just so you remember how it happened…

The wall came down. Why?

Some of you are too young. Some don’t remember, you pot-smokin’ hippies. You probably don’t remember much but “Full House.” OK, so here’s what happened twenty years ago…

President Ronald Reagan, Ronaldus Magnus, the greatest President of the Twentieth Century, made a speech in 1987 against the wishes of his own advisers and State Department. He said, “Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

In 1989, the Gate was opened. In 1990, the Wall came down.

It wasn’t Gorbachev, it wasn’t anybody else…it was the courage of Ronald Reagan.

God knows we need his kind today.
