A fitting way to celebrate World Freedom Day

Fifteen years ago today, the Berlin Wall was felled. My calendar notes this as "World Freedom Day" in celebration thereof. The late Great Communicator, who urged and prophesied the destruction of that odious Wall is honored today with the unveiling of a new US postal stamp bearing his image this afternoon (2:30 p.m. Eastern) at his presidential library.

Ronald Reagan Postage Stamp Unveiling: On November 9, the 15th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the United States Postal Service will unveil, for the first time, the artwork for the new Ronald Reagan postage stamp. The stamp will not be available for sale until mid-February.

The event will be attended by Mrs. Reagan and Mr. John Potter, the Postmaster General. Monica Mancini will perform.

This event will be held on the Library's replica of the White House South Lawn and is open to the public. This event is free to attend, however regular admission fees apply to enter the Museum. In addition, complimentary shuttles will run on Presidential Drive.
