why would you do that?

Well, somebody has to and I'm glad it's people that actually want to and enjoy their work. I don't think it would be something for me but I think it's awesome that others do it with really great care and give people the funeral they (or they family think they) wanted :)

when i was learning about this in history class it was so weird to read about berlin just being so cut off. i was born after the reunification so i cant even imagine what it was like. you did a great and important job. dropping the candy made the kids days and id say that it made the US troops really really popular so PR-wise it was a pretty smart move as well.
have you ever been to berlin after the reunification? if so did you recognize anything? what were your thoughts and feelings?

id be really odd to see somebody openly carrying a rifle if s/he did not belong to the police/military and honestly it would freak me out completely. i dont think youre used to being around people having guns if youre german (except for people who do shooting as a sport).

my aunts bf is from the former GDR, he constantly bitches about how things were so awesome over there. they had daycares where mothers could bring their kids monday morning and pick them up friday afternoon so they could work (basically all women had to work cause you didnt have a huge workforce). he thinks its a great idea and we should still have it cause you have all those "trashy people" who dont take proper care of their kids and the government should just take them away from their parents cause CPS is way too slow. when i was visiting a friend who now lives in leipzig i overheard a conversation from some people my age who complained about being beaten in daycare and that it was basically just for indoctrination (theres this story about the teachers asking the kids what the clock on the tv news looked like, if if was round of squared. one was from the western tv station, one from the eastern. i dont know if its true but it would make sense cause the kids probably wont lie cause they dont know about the consequences)
