it is one of those days everybody of a certain age remembers what one did when the news came around.
i was a bookseller-apprentice back then, had just turned 20 and lived in western Germany all my life. i didn´t do anything that night, although i listened to people driving around honking in the little city i lived back then, celebrating on the streets. i just watched the news programmes on tv and remember that i was a bit scared what would happen now to our country - i just couldn´t process all these information, because all my life i learned that there were two German states.
we are not one people yet, but i hope we will be some day.
