Mr. Gorbachev, Tear Down This Wall!

“General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization: Come here to this gate.

“Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate.

“Mr. Gorbachev — Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

–Ronald Reagan
June 12, 1987

And the wall came tumbling down.
