German unity day…

Today we depart what was once East Germany for the heart of what was once known as West Germany. We depart Berlin, train to Munich, and then drive to Bavaria and the heart of the Alps. Today, October 3rd, is known as German unity day. It’s been celebrated since 1990. Think about that.

Germany had been split apart since 1945 and the end of WWII. She’s only been back as one for 32 years. Germanic tribes have been splintered since forever. Study their history and it’s been anything but united for quite awhile. I wonder if I’ll live to witness the dividing of our states. Maybe I am.

Slow down. Reflect. Think. What freedoms do you hold to be self evident?

Live hard. Love harder. Unite or untie…
