History of World Freedom Day
In 2001, President George W.Bush created the World Freedom Day as a United States federal observance to mark the fall of Berlin Wall the Soviet Union and global communism. The day reminds the people that the victory over tyranny came without bloodshed, without loss of life, without marching armies and nuclear fallout. Every World Freedom Day will indicate the future tyrants that there is no future for tyranny. The Fall of Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989, is the turning point of the cold war and an important landmark in the victory over tyranny. The Berlin Wall stands as the main symbol for the separation of free people and those who live under dictatorships. Conservative groups like college Republicans and the Young America Foundation encourages the students to honor the day via the activism projects and the flyer campaigns. On the other hand, commentators and the political activists take this day as an opportunity to recognize President Ronald Reagan as one of the main personalities in the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of cold war.
