20th Anniversay – Reagan tells Gorbachev- ‘Tear Down This Wall’

June 12th, 1987, then President Ronald Reagan stood at the west side of the Berlin Wall and delivered his now famous speach.  This, like FDR’s prayer that we recently posted, is courage in action. 

General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
