Clinton and the Berlin Wall domino
When the Berlin Wall topples for a second time Monday, more may be laid bare than the inherent weakness of a political system.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the wall, Berliners have erected a wall of giant painted dominoes.
During the evening’s festivities the domino wall will be toppled along several blocks near Brandenburg Gate.
She met with the east Berlin school students and teachers who designed and painted the giant block and pronounced it “very impressive.”
The scene on the domino shows the back of a popular East German car traveling through a wall from darkness into light. Overhead are a rainbow and a white dove of peace.
Clinton said she liked “the light breaking through the dark.”
“Let’s do a picture with everybody in front of it, on both sides. I don’t want to cover it up,” she said.
“Thank you so very much for doing this and for coming out to see me,” Clinton told the youths. “Good job. Good job.”
The scene on the other side of the domino?
