Wall in progress.

I have to say what is in my heart.   – The scariest thing in the world right now is not Trump, or Madonna’s threats to blow things up, or any individual woman, or man behaving badly- it’s division. A wall is being built, oh yeah, indeed it is.

I’m looking around me on social media and day by day, brick by brick I’m seeing this wall being built.   People who were once united on some level be it shared interests or hobbies that brought them together in friendship in the first place…now?

And let’s face it there is stuff going on “out there” that is distasteful, and uncalled for because (some) people in all their worked up frenzied passion and vehemence are behaving badly, but woah…why can’t we all calm down and look at the bigger picture here?

Division starts wars. Always has done and always will.

What’s even more frightening is how very easily and quickly we divide.  Doesn’t take much for it to happen.  It’s like humanity is this seething mass – like a giant angry plague of beetles on the ground that in an instant can separate and turn against one another.

Are we really that self destructive?   That obsessed with “being right” that we can’t see the bigger picture?

The majority of all humans are very much the same. We are all outraged by deliberate cruelty. We all mourn and grieve. We all are fiercely protective of those we love. We all wish to simply live our lives in relative peace and quiet and don’t generally go out of our way to create disharmony.  We all cry, bleed, laugh, hunger for a sense of belonging and validation. At the very core we share MORE similarities than we do differences.

So why, time and time again do we bring about our own disharmony and instability – and inevitably weaken ourselves, as a whole, by building walls?

If ever there was a time to take the blinkers off it’s right now.  There is an undercurrent that is beginning to feel quite sinister and dangerous.

I hope I’m wrong.  I hope, with all my heart that this (wall) will quickly blow over so we can all just get back to making things GOOD and safe in the world, for the majority of us that crave safe and good.

There will be no winners against the very things that truly threaten us all, if everyone is too busy building this damn wall!

  1. So much happening, especially the events in Melbourne of late. Walls unfortunately will be built & in a way have to be built against the atrocities that are carried out (with the only to describe) as the scum, who went on his rampage. Social media has many pitfalls as we know. A simple post, can cause absolute outrage and vermin comments. It’s a circle we seem to have nutured, developed. Will it get better? Possibly not, being able to voice opinions is paramount. We do crave safety and all that is good, to live in a peaceful, non confrontal world, but it seems as though that vision sadly is a long way away.

    • The incident in Melbourne does call for walls, yes, good strong PRISON walls, of which more should be built to contain these evil individuals that do not deserve to walk among society. But what we don’t need are more walls within society itself. There are enough what with racism, sexism, homophobia, and religious beliefs. I feel we are on very shaky ground at the moment, world wide. It’s not good. I fear that much more of this pandoras box is about to be opened.
