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

peoples around the world united in their opposition to Soviet Communism;

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

(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
