Reagan's Visit to West Germany

Reagan's visit to a German cemetery was planned as a recognition of the reconciliation that has taken place between our two countries. We have changed from enemies to allies.

The visit has not reopened old wounds as much as it has revealed that many old wounds have never healed. Apparently some of our people harbor such hatred that they cannot share in a spirit of reconciliation, even after 40 years.
