Tina's WW - Barriers and walls

I hope I don't offend, but I remember this picture from age seven. The man in glasses is my father, then a reporter for UPI based in New York City. The year is 1962, the background is the Berlin Wall as seen from West Berlin. The sky is gray, the feeling is dark. At least it has been gone 22 years...

Wow....this is so amazing. To be the son of a NYC news reporter must have been a wonderful experience...both tragic in a way and yet exhilarating in another. What memories. And no, the photo is absolutely NOT offensive.

Oh, and Ralph....I must add "What fruitcake"? [lol...just kidding a bit from your comment you left for me yesterday]
