On this date 25 years ago....

A speech for the ages, which included perhaps the most riveting six words spoken by a President in my lifetime.

"Mr. Gorbachev. Tear down this wall."

For my money, it was President Ronald Reagan's closing remarks which really struck a chord.

"And I would like, before I close, to say one word. I have read, and I have been questioned since I've been here about certain demonstrations against my coming. And I would like to say just one thing, and to those who demonstrate so. I wonder if they have ever asked themselves that if they should have the kind of government they apparently seek, no one would ever be able to do what they're doing again."
