A Tribute to the Victims of Communism

Fire of Liberty

On the 20th anniversary of President Reagan's famous "Berlin Wall" speech it is fitting that President Bush and various other dignitaries attended and spoke at the dedication ceremony for the Victims of Communism Memorial in Washington D.C. With the official dedication of the monument, which is graced with a "Goddess of Democracy" statue, this nation will have a fitting monument to point out to future generations of the undying quest for freedom that the 100 million died standing up to the 80 years of tyranny of the Soviet Union and their various comrades in arms. As an individual who is well versed in the horrors of communism on its people, I've got to give a hearty hand to Lee Edwards and the outpouring of money from everyday Americans to erect such a fitting monument.

Now while I'm one who is short of words(Writing that is), I figured I'd direct you to some wonderfully written pieces on the individuals who died at the hands of the communist as well as the dedication of the Victims of Communism Memorial. See here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
