Question About Walls Arose During Blizzard


After blizzard Jonas swept through on Friday and Saturday, January 22-23, and we were digging out on Sunday, January 24th, I looked around and say walls of snow piled up in front of every house on the street. I asked myself "Why do politicians brag about how well they can build walls? Walls are easy. Bridges are hard." It's true. I'd like to see a lot more bridge building and outreach to our neighbors (in the religious sense, which means everyone) and a whole lot less fearful talk about needing walls to keep people out. Let's concentrate on fearless bridges and helping others instead of scaring ourselves into expensive walls on guns on every hip. 

Second version. Which do you like better?
