SkyWatch



This piece of the actual Berlin Wall was presented to President Ronald Reagan on April 12, 1990 at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. There are dramatic vistas clear to the Pacific Ocean from this lawn, which is a reproduction of South Lawn at the White House.

This is such a beautiful piece of the wall. I went there soon after the wall came down. It was a wonderful emotional experience. So hard to imagine living with a wall like this was!
