Three giants of the 20th century collaborated  on a miracle, the fall of communism. Pope John Paul II, Ronald Reagan. Margaret Thatcher. They each shared a unique character quality: conviction. They didn’t follow the crowd, they led the world based on the courage of their conviction.

The Berlin Wall came down 21 years ago. Relive the sheer joy of this triumph of freedom and human dignity. Thanks to the Pope, Mr. Reagan, and Mrs. Thatcher for persevering in the face of overwhelming odds.
