A Piece of the Wall

Located at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, the first time I saw this piece of the wall, I was floored.  I had taken a few history courses in my time in university and high school and I learned all about this wall.  I had seen photographs of the wall as a whole and it felt like what most history feels for me:  distanced.  Seeing this piece of the wall in person, however, really brings.  I imagine the people who tagged the wall with graffiti wanting to see its other side and wondering how their neighbours were doing after all these years.
