Wind of Change




I was only twelve when this song came to my ears, and I do not forget the moment after our school time, my classmates sung this song and we understand nothing about the lyric. But it was not the issue as we still enjoyed it, together.

That's the past story.

When I read the paper last Saturday morning, I found an article stories about the Berlin Wall. Then somehow this truly meaningful song, again, came over to my mind and whispered with its spirit.

I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change
An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change

The world is closing in
and Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers
The future's in the air
I can feel it everywhere
and Blowing with the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change

Reading throughout the article, I just knew this brilliant song marked the end of the Cold War and the fall of the Berlin Wall. It has been 20 years since East Germany have had a taste of freedom and democracy.

Berlin Wall, the physical symbol of the Iron Curtain and Cold War. On November 9, 1989, a peaceful revolution in East Germany had finally cracked this grim symbol of political oppression. It signaled the beginning of the end of Germany postwar division and national unity came less than a year later.

For me, it is more than that. Nothing to be argued that it impressed the symbolic of peace and harmony world.

This wonderful song reflects the genuine wave of hope. Moreover, it optimism that greeted the fall of communism in Europe. How old evils remain, and how a hope came with a glorious moment - peace and harmony long-life for the next generation.

I hope you got my point. Wind of Change, just a simple but a brilliant snapshot of a brief time when anything seemed possible. it is about much more than that if you allow it to be; helping to make the world a better place.

No more war. No more evils. Islam is the peaceful religion.


p/s: Other five tough papers need to be fight, as scheduled. Waiting for the next amazing projects after the exam. Sigh.
