August 13,1961
The new Berlin wall went up today. But alas, my lover and I were stuck on different sides, seeing as she the daugther of a weathy man in  the West. Here, I am stuck with communism and coruptness. We long to be together, and pray that it will happen someday soon, but the future looks bleak. 
September 24,1961
It has been a while since I have writen. I have been forced to police the wall and make sure no one goes in or out. You may say this is my opprotunity, however, many officers guard ME. I do get sparse glances on the West, but only a few have included the view of Muriel. She often calls to me at night in my dreams, and when I disclose this to my fellow soldiers, I am ridiculed beyond belief. This journal is my only confidant and I still must write in secret.
September 30,1961
Today I was able to secretly hide a letter in one of the bricks in the wall without being noticed. It read: Muriel, my lover. Stay where you are and I will come to you. When I come will be sooner than you think. 
November 22,1961
I have not written becuase I am coming up with a plan to get to the other side. I have to keep it very secret or else. Many men have tried, but not as many as cunning as I. The plan will take place next year, when I am off duty and the politicans are vacationing. They will be too blithe to notice me. 
December 31,1961
It is time for action. I will disclose the plan because it may be the last entry. The plan is simple: I will dress in all black and walk out to the wall area with my friends. Then, they will create a distraction a few kilometers away. Whilst that is going on, I will take out the special bricks I have replaced the real one with. These are foam and easy to pull out fast. Once I have crawled through and gotten to the other side, Muriel will help me replace the bricks. If I get caught, I will be charged with treason.
January 2,1962
Muriel and I are together at last. Only four months can take a toll on a man. We are going to the courthouse to change my name and I will now open a shop with Muriel. After we make enough money, we will wed and start a family. And I will never forget these last few months. Good~bye.
