There Are Still Walls Out There

There are so many beautiful and inspiring photographs of when the Berlin wall came down, everyone who remembers it talks about what a great moment in history it was.

After hearing such testimony I feel a great sense of shame and disappointment that 20 years later, we still have walls dividing cities, nations, and people. And while you’d think these walls would be on the verge of being torn down like the Berlin wall was not long ago, instead they get longer and they build more of them.

Which begs the question, have we learned anything since the fall of the wall?

Flattr this!

    It is amazing that walls are going up in Israel & Palestine, and between the USA & Mexico.

    Will any world leader stand up & say, “Mr. Netanyahu, tear down this wall?” or “Mr. Obama, tear down this wall?”

    i think its right to have those walls, as world does have to be one culture and one nation. its totally wrong. it will be one-noncultural chaos, non-traditional and unsocial mass of people.

    But does culture really stop at walls? I know of no example that proves that true.
