As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, joy, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
The classic example is that of building the wall along the borders between Mexico and America. I was always in opposition with this ideas, even when President Trump was campaigning for his presidency. A wall is a type of constraint. Just like the thinker, who wants to be able to think freely, without constraints, walls and barriers also do the same. Whilst putting America first and its safety is a high duty. I question and wonder: what is the construction of a wall saying? What is this wall implicitly saying? Or what is President Trump saying with the order of building this wall? He is not interested in helping others. So the question becomes: Do wealthy nations have an obligation to help nations that are less well - off? We have to take a look and examine who is crossing the borders? Often these are migrants who are in desperate circumstances who are fleeing for a better life. These thoughts can be assimilated to the Syrian refugees who flee their homes, because of constant war. We only leave our homes because of the dire desperation.
As nations continue to define themselves with borders and lines. We have to question that yes, a nation wants to maintain a national identity. But how does this create a tension? A nations wealth will be tested. Can a President really have a good nights sleep, and say hooray I have protected my people, whilst knowing there is suffering on the other side. You see it is just like knowing a neighbor is dying, and you don't bother to simply say: How can I help you?
