Another Scar of a Wall



Text  



The World War Two Memorial is an open-air memorial open 24 hours a day, yet for some reason, the National Park Service insists that access to it must be shut off to everyone — including Honor Flights.

A line from Reagan’s Brandenburg Gate speech: “Today I say, as long as the gate is closed, as long as this scar of a wall is permitted to stand, it is not the German question alone that remains open, but the question of freedom for all mankind.”

Replace “German” with “park.”
