The date on which the Wall fell is considered to have been 9 November 1989 but the Wall in its entirety was not torn down immediately. Starting that evening and in the days and weeks that followed, people came to the wall with sledgehammers or otherwise hammers and chisels to chip off souvenirs, demolishing lengthy parts of it in the process and creating several unofficial border crossings. These people were nicknamed "Mauerspechte" (wall woodpeckers).

Dreamworks Studios film "I am Number Four." He followed that up with "Mr. Popper's Penguins" before going on location to Berlin for the Paramount film "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters."

Operation: Next Chapter is “working with Soldier’s Angeles Project: Valour-IT to provided 100 voice-controlled, adaptive lap-top computers for military personnel who have lost the use of their hands. Vietnam Veteran and author Cym Lowell will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of his latest novel, Jasper’s War, to purchase these individually adapted computers which cost $500 a piece. The laptops allow warriors who are healing from amputations, paralysis, eye injuries, burns and brain trauma to stay in touch with their family and their units during their recovery period.”
Cym Lowell "was born in Montana to academics and spent his youth traveling the world. To put it politely, he was an undistinguished student, rewarded with assignment to the U.S. Navy at 18. After two years in Vietnam, college and law school were a challenge. Being a veteran in the political turbulence of the late 1960s and early 1970s taught humility. Raising three children in the Midwest and Texas brought love and responsibility. An international tax practice in the financial crises of the past 40 years provided insight into motivations of actors on the global stage. Friends, clients, adversaries, and colleagues, like victory and defeat, added color and context. The result is a writer with a treasure trove of experience to frame compelling characters enmeshed in heart-thumping challenges." Cym Lowell is the author of The Gift, Riddle of Berlin and Jaspar's War.

Personal and professional situations, which changed my life, include 42 years with the US Department of Defense at home and abroad in Europe and Japan. I met people from all walks of life and all areas of religion and spirituality. Recognition of the power of the Individual Human Being, realization of the impact each of us can make and demonstrating the power of the Divine within caused me to realize I am so fulfilled when working with and around people.
Managing budgets amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars and working with universities and various contractors taught me to manage multiple challenges. Adversity when managing business loss, bankruptcy and the challenges of righting my course of life has also challenged me. I honor all the role models I have worked with and who have shown me such profound lessons.
I helped people, whose lives had been altered by the death of a loved one, including war deaths in several wars. I stood at the Berlin Wall as it fell and worked to negotiate relationships for five years afterward. Back in the U.S., I watched as people lost homes due to financial woes, helping those people work through loss and realize new avenues.
Hobby: Writing and learning about people and the impact of spiritual learning. Building a new program and website, www.anewviewofeternity.com Volunteer: I volunteer for programs helping wounded warriors and first responders.
