On June 26, 2013, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues a special new Souvenir Sheet honoring the 50th Anniversary of President Kennedy's "Ich Bin Ein Berliner" speech. On June 26, 1963, U.S. President John F. Kennedy made a historic and rousing speech to a Berlin crowd gathered in the shadow of the somber Berlin Wall. Standing on the steps of the Rathouse Schöneberg, Kennedy denounced the Wall as a vivid demonstration of the failure of the Communist system, an offense against history but also against humanity because it separated people who wish to be joined together. More than a million Germans roared their approval as Kennedy declared, "Ich bin ein Berliner" ... "I am a Berliner." It was one of the most uplifting statements in the history of man, a heartening reminder to a divided Germany that freedom is indivisible, and that when one man is enslaved no one is free.
