Berliners tried to send Trump a piece of the Berlin Wall with a message saying no wall lasts forever

On the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Berliners tried to send President Donald Trump a massive slab of the structure, along with a message reminding him that "no wall lasts forever."

The stunt was organized by the nonprofit Die Offene Gesellschaft and financed by private donations, according to Quartz. It takes aim at Trump's efforts to build a wall along the US-Mexico border to halt illegal immigration.

The 2.7-ton chunk of concrete arrived in Washington, DC, on Saturday, and local media outlets reported that the Secret Service turned it away.

Photos and videos posted on social media showed the wall arriving in the city on Saturday.

1. It's the thought that counts

Maybe they should have chosen a smaller chunk (a few pounds that fit inside a box) and it might have gone through all the approvals.

2. A smaller chunk wouldn't have had the same impact. Throw a bigger stone, it gets more attention. nt

4. Thanks for this, Berliners. Thanks, Die Offene Gesellschaft.

It means more than I can express, to know that YOU know we-- Americans, that is-- still represent the real vision of America in the world, rather than the boorish, fascist vulgarian and his henchfolk who managed to steal the 2016 election.

The vision lives.

We keep it, and knowing that you keep it as well is a powerful affirmation.

"A world without walls" can happen.

appreciatively,
Bright
