H. CON. RES. 223
Expressing the sense of the Congress regarding Freedom Day.
H. CON. RES. 223
Whereas on November 9, 1989, the Berlin Wall was torn down by those whom it had
Whereas the fall of the Berlin Wall has become the preeminent symbol of the end
of the Cold War;
Whereas the Cold War, at its essence, was a struggle for human freedom;
Whereas the end of the Cold War was brought about in large measure by the
dedication, sacrifice, and discipline of Americans and many other
peoples around the world united in their opposition to Soviet Communism;
Whereas freedom's victory in the Cold War against Soviet Communism is the
crowning achievement of the free world's long 20th century struggle
against totalitarianism; and
Whereas it is highly appropriate to remind Americans, particularly those in
their formal educational years, that America paid the price and bore the
burden to ensure the survival of liberty on this planet: Now, therefore,
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That it is the sense of the Congress that--
(1) a Freedom Day should be celebrated each year in the
United States; and
(2) the United States should join with other nations,
specifically including those which liberated themselves to help
end the Cold War, to establish a global holiday called Freedom
