I thought this was cool this week when at a local university in Downtown, Washington DC, they did a reenactment of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
The division between East and West came tumbling down on November 9, 1989 ushering in the end of the Cold War.
The students graffitied the wall with things they disliked like fascism, socialism, high taxes, a PC culture, censorship, and poverty.
Later, they added Neo-Nazi’s, corruption, and more.
By the afternoon, they knocked down the wall in the playful reenactment.
I found it hopeful to think that we can do the same in real life.
With President-elect Trump, perhaps there is the opportunity for new and better relations with Russia.
Rather than escalating tensions and pointing new more advanced nukes at each other and encroaching ever closer toward confrontation, we can stop the madness.
Truly reset the mindset of conflict and instead work together and walk it back.
With respect for each other, there is enough world pie for everyone.
Tear down the wall, and build trust, respect, and peaceful relations again.
No nonsense peace through strength and cooperation is the sane way forward–the alternative would be disaster!
