The Wall – Protector or Divider?

The Wall - Protector or Divider? 2

“Build a 10-foot wall and I’ll build an 11-foot ladder” – Jamaican Proverb

“Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” – U.S. President Ronald Reagan

The United States is spending millions to build a wall to keep out Mexicans. What good will it do? Israel built a wall to keep out the Palestinians. What good did it do? The Roman Emperor Adrian built a wall to keep out the barbaric Scotts. What good did it do? Ancient China built the Great Wall of China to keep out the Northerners – the Great Mongol Horde. What good did it do? Nazi Germany built the Atlantic Wall to keep out the Allies. What good did it do?

Walls did not save the great cities of Jericho (against the Hebrew Chieftain Joshua), Troy (against the Spartan King Agamemnon), Tyre (against Alexander the Great), Beit ha-Midkash in Jerusalem (against the Roman Emperor Titus), Rome (against the German Chieftain Alaric I), and the Byzantine Empire’s Capital Constantinople (against Ottoman Emperor Mehmed II).

To the contrary, walls are dividers that crumble under the pressure of opposing actors/forces. The United States should spend its millions on renovating the crumbling bridges (i.e., Interstate 35W Bridge) across the country instead of wasting millions on a shameful divider. As a matter of fact, we should spend millions building bridges to other cultures and nations; to the future instead of to the past.

Build a bridge and tear down the wall; be a uniter and not a divider. We just may live happily ever after.
