Everybody's Got One
A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

Something there is that doesn't get a wall  

Today at mass the homilist used the text of Jesus asking Who is my mother and my brother? to wonder, Why can't we all just get along? A stretch, yes, but fair enough.

And then he mentioned the Berlin wall as an example of not living as the family of man. And then the other wall going up near Jerusalem.

Now, I recognize that religious see things differently from the rest of us; they sometimes have an endearing innocence about the world they live apart from. But it is utterly stupefying to me that anyone could confuse a wall built to keep people from escaping and one built to protect people from being blown up on buses or murdered in their beds.
