Tens of thousands thronged the route of the Berlin Wall on Monday for emotional celebrations to mark 20 years since its fall, but Chancellor Angela Merkel said Germany still bears the scars of division.

World leaders joined huge crowds recalling the defining moment of the end of communist rule in Europe, when the embattled East German state finally opened the despised concrete border on November 9, 1989. Facts about the Wall

Merkel, who grew up in the communist state, attended a "very moving" memorial service at a church where pro-democracy rallies were held in the weeks before the end of the communist regime.

I wish I could be there. I remember when the wall went down, there was a world wide celebration for the freedom of the E. German people. I have a piece of that wall above my computer to remind me of mans quest to be free.
