Torn Down, Lifted Up

On the centennial of President Reagan's birth,
I recall how I happened to be in Berlin at the time 
the Wall was coming down.

I joined the crowd, 
rented a sledgehammer, and helped pound down 
hunks of that evil thing which I keep on my bookshelves.

Also saw Billy Graham preach from the Reichstag in the evening in the fog. 
That was something else, too.
