Walls are like grand barriers that withhold its interior inhabitants from leaving them, whether or not they wish too. The wall that bisected the German city of Berlin since 1949 held back the extreme animosity kept within the German people , and the emotional wall built in Robert Frost’s “Mending Wall” prevented a man from connecting with those he does not know. Both President Ronald Reagan and Robert Frost emphasized the appalling effects on civilizations that walls have.
The Berlin Wall coming down 25 years back not simply joined Germany and expected the coming breakdown of the Soviet Union; (Tony Karon) it created a noteworthy change in overall issues. Even though the Cold War that happened after World War II made a very bipolar world, due to relations between the parallel conflict of a U.S.- drove West versus a Soviet-instructed East, in the end, there was more peace than the beginning. The detached of the West from the East Berlin symbolizes the end of the Cold War
The 80 's was a pivotal and controversial decade in American history. It can be characterized by prominent political, religious, military, economic and social aspects.

East Berliniers exemplified feelings of imprisonment, from being trapped and communistically controlled on their side of the wall. Unlike the west side, the east side does not represent any sense of freedom. Pathos is the appeal to emotions. Therefore, this use of pathos helps Reagan persuade Gorbachev to take down the wall because it shows that, without any wall both societies would operate as one, indicating freedom for all. The rhetorical elements, logos and pathos, included in Ronald Reagan’s speech, “ Tear Down This Wall” assist Reagan and his words to convince Gorbachev, along with the people of Berlin, that the wall between eastern and western Berlin must be dismantled. The rhetorical elements, logos and pathos, included in Ronald Reagan’s speech, “ Tear Down This Wall” assist Reagan and his words to convince Gorbachev, along with the people of Berlin, that the wall between eastern and western Berlin must be dismantled.

In the story entitled “The War of the Wall”, by Toni Cade Bambara, two boys are walking to school and find a surprise. They realize someone is painting over there special wall. The boys tell their parents who don’t care. With no help from their parents, they decide to go out and buy epoxy paint to cover up the wall.

This wall was dedicated to Jimmy Lyons who was a friend of theirs. Jimmy was going to take them fishing when he came home from the war, however, he did not return.
This investigation, examining certain events of the Cold War, will answer the question: To what extent did President Ronald Reagan’s actions aid in the end of the Cold War? The Cold War was a war between the United States and the Soviet Union that took place from 1947 to 1991. During that time several United States presidents took office, one of the last being Ronald Reagan whose actions have been argued to have been more influential than the rest and impactful toward the downfall of the ongoing war with the Soviet Union.

“We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, while others bright, some have weird names, but they all have learned to live together in the same box” (Fulgham, Robert). In the same way, each individual is a unique crayon, and we all live together in one big box, the world. Rituals of Memory, by Kimberly Blaeser, also uses symbolism to describes relationships like a loop that always returns. Similarly, Alberto Rios, in The Vietnam Wall, brings us on his journey while viewing the Vietnam Wall, which serves as a symbol of America’s honor and those who died or remain missing from the Vietnam War. The Gettysburg Address, however, uses allusions to convey that all men are created equal
Some historians believe the Cold War was inevitable because of the hostilities from both America and the Soviet Union after World War II. America believed that the USSR was an expansionist country trying to spread an evil, communistic idea throughout the world. Although the countries never directly fought against each other, as they only fought in proxy wars, there was still extreme conflict. The United States responded to the Soviets actions in Germany, Europe, and their national actions. These responses were justifiable, or so many Americans at the time believed. Many realized that the Soviet Union was a terrible foe to face, as George Kennan, a respected American diplomat, noticed. He said in “The Sources of Soviet Conduct,” “This means
The conservative movement included the entitlement programs, civil rights policies, and decreasing the size of the government. The political party, Moral Majority, was a Christian rights and conservative party. It also included affirmative action, or providing special treatment to minorities, being scaled back (as well as reverse discrimination which is the practice of favoring those who were previously oppressed). One of the major social concerns of the 1980’s was abortion. After the Roe v Wade of 1973, opponents began to organize and the Supreme Court ruled that states were allowed to impose restrictions to abortion. Another issue was drug abuse becoming out of hand. America also faced an educational inferiority; American students were found
The Berlin Conference is an example of leaders coming together to form political boundaries. Since this happened it shows how many things were affected. This includes people, countries, resources found in that place. The biggest thing is it has a large affect on the future of everyone and everything. Before discussing how it really affected things, I’ll say why people decide to make political boundaries in the first place.
The Berlin Wall was built to separate the Communist east from the Democratic west. This ominous divider was was twelve feet of concrete that stretched for one hundred miles around West Berlin. The infamous symbol of the Cold War was guarded by electric fences and guard posts stationed along it. This boundary was built in 1961 and fell in 1990, after a decree was put into place by the East Germans to open the wall in 1989. Ronald Reagan’s speech “Tear Down this Wall” was one of the events that lead to the destruction of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War era. This speech took place on the edge of the berlin Wall on the seven hundred fiftieth anniversary of Berlin and was directed towards anyone who was listening and affected by the separation the wall caused. The speech given by Ronald Reagan on June 12, 1987 is memorable because of the use of logos and pathos throughout the entire speech.
The Berlin Airlift began when the Soviet Union built a blockade preventing supply transportation and forced the Americans to begin the Berlin Airlift.
The Berlin Wall separated many families as it divided Berlin into a communist and capitalist state. This division spread anger throughout the world as it became an international crisis. This worldwide anger proves that the Wall did not only cause a physical division but divided communist and capitalist countries throughout the world. This divide was known as the Iron Curtain. This article says that Germany “became a creature of the Communist-capitalist conflict”. This description is stating that Germany represented what was going on in the rest of the world during the Cold War. Even before the Wall was built, there was a prominent divide in Germany. The Western Powers did express
