Wonderful song by a most talented artist. Many of you have seen the film"Goodbye Lenin". Very interesting description of a real life situation. The hatred between people of the same country.Throughout history civil war has only destroyed countries. Rivers of blood flowing. People dying by their brother's hands. Mothers crying. Orphan children. Of course it's the same with any war.The only difference is that civil war destroys nations,smashing any idea of brotherhood or union as with the same language or ideas. There is no worse thing than a civil war is is tores apart every little part of the country itself. And Germany really suffered from this. Many families were broken, lovers were separated and of course people died. Hopefully today she advances as one piece and the Wall has fallen,setting an end to this tragedy. Only thing remaining is broken pieces, remembering everyone of this situation so anything like this happens again.
History is a very powerful weapon. As Thucydides has said History is repeated. So we should all learn from the mistakes of the past, so that we do not make them today. And for this we can hope for a better tomorrow. For a better world in which we live.
P.S Try reading it while listening to Yann Tiersne's Summer 78
