In 1989, a series of radical political changes occurred in the Eastern Bloc, associated with the liberalization of the Eastern Bloc's authoritarian systems and the erosion of political power in the pro-Soviet governments in nearby Poland and Hungary. After several weeks of civil unrest, the East German government announced on 9 November 1989 that all GDR citizens could visit West Germany and West Berlin.. Crowds of East Germans crossed and climbed onto the wall, joined by West Germans on the other side in a celebratory atmosphere. Over the next few weeks, a euphoric public and souvenir hunters chipped away parts of the wall; the governments later used industrial equipment to remove most of the rest.. The physical Wall itself was primarily destroyed in 1990. The fall of the Berlin Wall paved the way for German reunification, which was formally concluded on 3 October 1990...

Boaz and Jachin were two copper, brass or bronze pillars which stood in the porch of Solomon's Temple, the first Temple in Jerusalem..The original measurement as taken from the Bible was in cubits, which records that the pillars 18 cubits high and 12 cubits around, and hollow, four fingers thick. (Jeremiah 52:21–22). Nets of checkerwork covered the bowl of each chapiter, decorated with rows of 200 pomegranates, wreathed with se7en chains for each chapiter, and topped with lilies (1 Kings 7:13–22, 41–42)..In The Lost Symbol (a novel by author Dan Brown), the villain Mal'akh had tattooed Boaz and Jachin on both of his legs..The Carrollton, Kentucky bus collision was the deadliest drunk driving incident and 2nd deadliest bus disaster in United States history... you understand what I'm saying..They have no idea what's going on over there, Mom - the men that are sacrificing their lives. People are dying every day over there, and nobody back here even seems to care..It's my leg! I want my leg, you understand? Can't you understand that? Ali's I'm sayin' is that I want to be treated like a human being! I fought for my country! I am a V Veteran! I fought for my country!..You bought that Communist bullshit, Ronnie. Yeah, they were going to take over the world, you remember that? Benelli,do U Walshy..Sometimes, Stevie, I think people, they know you're back from V, and their face - changes: the eyes, the voice, the way they look at you..Do you remember things that made sense,you know...
