Today, a Pixar interpretation opens across the nation.
Looks like a good one.

A Salute to Veterans across the Nation

Here is my personal favorite on the Mall which honors our Veterans. It is best viewed in the night as it is uplit to reveal the soldiers as they would have been maneuvering about in the dark while in Korea.
A salute to all Veterans on this day.

Free at last~!

I lived in Frankfurt, West Germany when "the wall" came tumbling down. Citizens were frantic with excitement flooding to the marktplatz in each and every town across the country to celebrate with a bier in hand. Over-sized German flags could be seen waving out of the sun roofs of cars, honking horns like fans of the team that had just only won the Super Bowl.
Then, the roads began to fill with the Trabi's...small autos made of fiberglass with very small engines and made in the DDR as the East Germans began to assimilate in their new Germany.
It was an exciting time and a moment in history for me. Twenty years ago today.
