By request: I was born in E.Germany and helped take down the Berlin Wall.
Me, as a kid. This is at the annual fair in my hometown in East Germany. First quarter of the 1970s. http://i.imgur.com/jHdnV.jpg

Top row, third from the left: http://i.imgur.com/l9kJR.jpg Must have been 1984 then. 8th grade, we were all 14-ish and decked out for "Jugendweihe". Google it or ask me ;)
Me, my mother, my brother, and my mother's second husband. http://i.imgur.com/gFyfg.jpg
A few years ago, I ran into a documentary about the fall of the Berlin Wall, spotted my own mug on the screen, and took a screenshot of it later that night, when it was shown again: http://i.imgur.com/YwFia.jpg
And more or less lastly, my wife and I, at the rose gardens in Tyler, TX, nowaday-ish: http://i.imgur.com/wauk3l.jpg
My life became much more interesting that day, and it baffles me that this was almost a quarter century ago. I mean, when I was born, WW2 was over by the same number of years.
