Today in history, we saw John F Kennedy delivered what is considered now an infamous speech in front of the Berlin Wall, called “Ich bin ein Berliner”, which translates to “I am a Berliner”.

Also in 2000, the first draft of the Human Genome, one of the greatest achievements in modern science, was released.

And finally, Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone, the book was released 20 years ago today. No one knew the book would grow into one of the most influential stories of our time.
