20 years since Fall of the Berlin Wall

November 11, 2009. Today, it’s 20 years since the Fall of the Berlin wall. 20 years… What have we learnt? What have we already forgotten? About the division of a city, of Europe, of the world…?

My dear friend Iva grew up in the other side of Europe. I’ve been meaning to ask her what she experienced, what she felt this very day? Not only is it the anniversary of a wall that came down. It is her Birthday. Today.

Happy, Happy Birthday Iva! And to the rest of us, let this day be a reminder of what we never can take for granted; democracy, integrity, an open society.

With love,
