We traveled to the beautiful city of Berlin in 2014. Although the Berlin Wall had fallen 25 years earlier and is now a part of history, its presence is still keenly felt.
I found it impossible to ignore The Wall.
The path of the former wall dividing East and West Berlin has been set in brick into the road as a permanent reminder of the Cold War years.
It is a chilling marker of what happens when distrust, hostility, and a struggle for power gets out of control.
Some scars never fade.
