A few days ago, I was asked to write a post for the National Constitution Center’s blog, Constitution Daily. I decided to analyze one of the greatest and most influential speeches of all time…

Twenty-one years ago today, East German authorities opened their border to West Berlin.  A few years prior to the collapse of the Berlin Wall, President Reagan made his infamous “Tear Down This Wall” speech.  My blog post analyzes how Reagan’s distinct communication style influenced this pivotal point in history.

I’d appreciate any feedback you may have about my blog post and ways I can improve my own personal blog.  You can read my latest post, “Tear Down This Wall!” here: http://blog.constitutioncenter.org/ncc/featured/reagans-tear-down-this-wall-analyzed/

For anyone who hasn’t visited the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, I highly recommend making the trip.  Growing up in central Jersey with family near the Philadelphia area, I enjoy exploring its wonderful exhibits and learning more about America’s rich history.
