The Berlin Airlift


At the Truman Library in Independence there is a display covering the Berlin Airlift. The Berlin Airlift occurred when Soviet Russia cut off East Germany trapping the western portions of Berlin behind the East German border. Harry Truman and Secretary of State Marshall's solution was to overcome this blockade by sending hundreds of cargo planes until the Russians backed down.

This display commemorated that event. It was not easy taking this picture without a tripod and in the low light.

Think about how you could help others today and have a great weekend.

That's a very impresive dramatic depiction of the airlift.
I do try to make each day brighter by at least giving a smile to someone who looks like they could use it. Thanks for the reminder and have a great weekend yourself.
