The years flew by in a heart beat. It’s been 15 years, I left Germany with my husband and my middle child. Katelynn was almost four months old, when we moved to the United States. Wow, I felt very little homesick in all these years. I won’t forget, that my roots and my crib was in Germany. But America is home for me, now.
Today, Germany celebrates its 29th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. East and West Germany became officially “one” country and therefore many people became reunited with their families, again. Since 1990, we celebrate Day of German Unity (Tag der Deutschen Einheit) annually on October 3rd.

Wow! It amazes me how time flies by, when we have fun. Fifteen years ago, Kevin and I said ‘I do’. And it has been a crazy ride, since. We laughed, we cried, we loved, we fought. But at the end of the day, we were a couple that stuck it out. Hopefully we can celebrate many more anniversaries, and grow old together.
A town remembers the bombing, 72 years ago. I remember my grandmother telling the shocking experience on her 19th birthday, when bombs came down and destroyed 90% of Würzburg back on March 16, 1945. She told me, she had to run down the street as fast as she could to the life saving bunker. The street never seemed as long as before and after the night between 9:25-9:42 PM CET. She was 8 months pregnant, in a night gown, no shoes on her feet, and she had to throw herself on the ground every few seconds, hoping she’s not getting hit by a bomb. She finally made it to the bomb shelter crossing over an old train bridge and was safe. 5000 lives didn’t make it that night. Every year we remember the day with the church bells ringing all over the city from 9:25 – 9:42 PM, and a silent moment. And we all hope, we never have to go through this again: NIE WIEDER KRIEG! (NO MORE WAR!)
