    berlin2342Six hundred people died on the Berlin wall, trying to escape the terrible life of communism. On Tuesday November 5 the Grosse Pointe North and South High School chapters of Young Americans for Freedom, spent the afternoon constructing replica pieces of the fallen Berlin Wall to commemorate the liberation of East Germany.

    Grosse Pointe North YAF chairman Grant Strobl believes that the commemoration serves as a reminder that this is not old history, "President Ronald Reagan's famous Brandenburg gate speech was only twenty-five years ago; the oppression of socialism is not foreign to the modern world."

    Simply built of two-by-fours and drywall, the mock Berlin wall serves as a commemoration of the end of communism in Europe. 

    "Socialist policies divide and kill; they build walls and they build dependency," Strobl continues. 

    In fact, one of the Young Americans for Freedom posters shows that "100,000,000 people [were] murdered by progressive social movemens in the name of helping people" and that "425,574,817 people [were] freed from communist tyranny by Ronald Reagan & worldwide freedom movements." 

    The wall serves as a reminder of how fortunate we are to live in a free country; and also a reminder that this freedom needs to be protected.
