This is a sculpture called "The Day The Wall Came Down: A Monument to Freedom," by sculptor Veryl Goodnight. It's located next to the George Bush Library and Museum on the Texas A&M campus. Those are actual pieces from the Berlin wall used in the sculpture. The wild mustangs (cast in bronze) trampling over the rubble of the collapsed wall symbolize the triumph of freedom over tyranny. I took this pic on Friday July 4th while attending an Independence Day celebration there along with Mark (Cheaptrick) and my daughter.

Not only is it an excellent picture and sculpture, the statement about freedom is powerful too.

Oh I made it to TX all right! I've been eating since I hit the state line. I bet my shadow weighs a buck 25!
Been great though.
