Lest we forget: It was 21 years ago this week, on June 12, 1987 in front of Brandenberg Gate, Berlin, that President Ronald Reagan challenged then-General Secretary Michael Gorbechev to Open this gate. . . tear down this wall!
There's nothing quite like seeing President Reagan's words in context. But it was another two years and six months later -- November 1989 -- that the wall came down.
