Too many people spend their energy building walls. So much effort is put into separating “us” from “them”. Race, lifestyle, religion, politics…each a brick piled one on the other until the wall finally keeps us apart, isolating us from the richness we could experience, robbing us of a deeper understanding of life. I am bone-tired of so many walls; oh, for the gift of a gate.
