Remembering the fall of the Berlin Wall

Twenty years ago, I was a five-and-a-half year old little girl who called the former Yugoslavia (now Slovenia) home.  I remember November 9, 1989 well. I was visiting Germany that day, and I like to think I fully understood the significance of what was happening. (I did, after all, celebrate in an age-appropriate way — with a bowl of Sugar Smacks.)

Today, I celebrate freedom.
