Because the images are “cropped” to make the header, I like to showcase the full image in a post, as I have done here. As you can see, the somewhat stark images are beautiful, in that they show the “torn down” barbed wire, which is symbolic of the destruction of that old barrier to freedom.
Reconstructing the wall was not done to resurrect any old barriers, but to symbolically celebrate that freedom.
Images of freedom are celebratory, and these were created during the twenty-year anniversary in November 2009.
Here’s to freedom, and may it live forever!
