Efforts Toward Peace

Today’s GoogleDoodle video about the falling of the Berlin Wall made me aware of gratitude for efforts toward peace. One site that I was sorry not to see in the overview of wall memorials is Fulton, Missouri.

Winston Churchill made his famous “Iron Curtain” speech at Westminster College. Following the fall of the Berlin Wall, Churchill’s granddaughter Edwina Sandys designed a sculpture titled “Breakthrough” using eight sections of the wall gifted to Westminster by German authorities.

The kids and I used to have a summer tradition of Friday Field Trips. I took this photo during a visit to the National Churchill Memorial on 08/08/08 on our way to pick up Phil from a business trip.
