Today, November 9th is the 20th Anniversary of the end of The Wall in Germany.
Much like the election of our new American president, it proves that change can happen, it’ s possible and it all depends on the people. Change is not about money, it’s not about great leaders, it’s about regular folks – like you!
If it’s true that all politics are local, what do you want to happen locally?
We love this story….
Die Mode hat sich geändert.
Die Frauen haben sich verändert.
Unsere Welt ist eine andere.
No, you’re not reading about a new platform bed sale at IKEA – these are the words announcing a breakthrough modeling initiative at Brigitte, Germany’s most popular women’s magazine. Translated, they say:

Adoring Germans are expected to turn up by the thousands, tens of thousands, or perhaps billions to see their new favorite American politician. Obama had originally considered giving the speech in front of the Brandenburg Gate, but after critics contended the site was inappropriate for someone who hasn’t even won the election yet, Obama decided to deliver the same exact speech in front of a different, less presumptuous symbolic landmark … the Victory Column.
